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

1,260 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.

i once visited highgate during sixth form for a drawing reference photoshoot but was only able to go in the east side as the west side was booking only, but i knew i wanted to return to visit the west side. luckily i was able to book an unguided visit of the west side for my partners birthday (lovely jolly trip i know) as we were both eager to go, and i was amazed. the east side is beautiful but the west side just topped any expectation i had going into it - the circle of lebanon was unlike anything i'd ever seen, the staff dotted around the cemetery were so helpful and full of interesting info! i highly recommend to anyone even slightly considering it, it's well worth the money and i'd love to return one day for the guided tour too!

This is a really interesting place and absolutely beautiful! We visited on a bright Autumn day and took the tour with a fabulously knowledgeable guide. Well worth the short trip out of London on the Northern line 15 min from central London off peak. Take a short walk up the Highgate hill and cut down through Dartmouth Park Hill (a park)

Went to highgate cemetery on the suggestion of a friend as something different and had a wonderful walk around all the tombs and sculptures. So many untold stories and some famous names amongst the graves. Worth a visit if you want ti do something different.
