Jack the Ripper Tour with 'Ripper-Vision' in London

1,236 reviews
Immerse yourself in Victorian London on this one-of-a-kind Jack the Ripper experience featuring RIPPER-VISION.™ Unlike other tours, your guide uses handheld projectors to accompany spine-chilling tales of the murders committed by Jack the Ripper in the 1800s. As you explore the dimly lit back streets of Whitechapel, images of Victorian London are projected onto buildings to guarantee a highly atmospheric experience. Plus, an evening departure time means you’ll experience London at its most mysterious.

We had prebooked our entry to the gallery although it was free to visit. We were unable to enter until our allocated time as it was fairly busy. Gallery staff were very helpful. Although we saw most of what we wanted to see we found the one way system quite restrictive in as much as if you make a wrong turn you can’t go back. Fully understandable in the circumstances. Some paintings ie Sunflowers were out on loan. Recommended but would like to go back when the restrictions are lifted. Could have looked at The Haywain for ages, beautiful.

The museum is fairly large so you want to plan your visit accordingly. The art collection is deep and covers several art movements. It is well worth a visit, especially considering that it is free. There is a cafe' inside so you can rest when you want to take a break.

Of course, you have to book in advance, but that's no problem, as long as your phone shows the booking!. Be on the safe side - print out the ticket. The Gallery has managed to lay out quite a few of its holdings in three separate walks, so you can see the periods of art you are particularly interested in.

It’s a while since we’ve been to the National Gallery and our first visit with the Covid measures in place. There are 3 routes for the free collection (free ticket needs to be booked online). Everybody does A and you can then choose B or C. On arrival you are directed to the left queue if you have tickets for a paid exhibition and the right for the free collection. Both moved quickly once let forward. The time given for each route is the minimum and you can go more slowly, though sitting and sketching appears to be discouraged - understandable as they need to limit numbers in the building at any one time to be sure those inside will be able to maintain social distancing. Inside there is a one way system - clearly signed on entry to each room. It was explained on entering route A that you went to the end, followed the one way system round and then did the second aisle. Good to see the collection with less people, though it might be necessary to hold back temporarily at some pictures. There were quite a few loans / new acquisitions. We heard a number of staff telling people which rooms certain pictures were in and how to get there on the one way system so if you want to see a particular picture do ask on your way in. Staff were all polite and helpful, though understandably they sometimes had to stop people going where they wanted as it was against the one way system.
