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.

We visited the museum today to hopefully see some fashion. The museum is very easy to locate, literally down the road from London Bridge station. The Museum is quite small, literally 2 floors with the main area on the ground. Due to its size it was only showing one exhibit, Design Guild, which was very interesting. I would recommend a visit but check out first the timetable. The V&A is still the place for great fashion events.

One of my favourite places to visit. Visiting South London for a wedding and had a free day. Checked online and yes, open and even better it was an exhibition I thought I would miss but had been extended. Booked tickets online and we were alone in viewing the exhibition. Collier Campbell goods in shop reduced in price. Disability toilet open for all to use.

Made effort to visit 'Out of the Blue' Tricia Guild exhibition. Sooo pleased we did! For starters, the Jubilee line to London Bridge was less crowed than local shopping area! Train practically empty! The walk along Bermondsey Street equally fab, popped into the glass blowing shop.. always a great, & arrived with phone tickets &arts fund cards early. No problem. Scanned in, sanitised, uploaded brochure (& took printed version) & were away! Exhibition super. Room settings amazing. Brilliantly staged & curated. The fabrics and colours are ageless. The furniture mixed and matched across the decades... great. Chandeliers & florals to the plain & decourous... such styling! I need to reassess my cushions!!!! Exhibition (sadly- or not?) not that busy... midday... Shop and staff charming. So pleased we made the effort. Lunch at Pizarro after was great too!!!

I am normally a huge fan of this small museum and try to visit every time I am in London. I've seen the exhibit for Missoni and many other amazing exhibits and had a great time every time. Last time I visited, was the beginning of March, for the Designers Guild exhibit and I was shocked. It seemed to have been put up by a school class for a project somehow. It was messy and uninteresting. It looked cheap and haphazard. I am so sorry to say and I really hope it will be much better next time, as all the other exhibits were great. I am looking forward to my next visit. Good to know: there is no cloakroom other than some small closet that everyone has access to. Not a great place for fashion fans (!) to leave their coveted fashions finds, new or vintage..... There is also no restaurant or coffee corner, but the museum is found in a nice little street where you can find some small cafes for a nice cuppa.

I've ben meaning to go here for some time and happened to go when the exhibition is all about textiles (Feb - June 2020) - the receptionist did tell me this before I paid. Full price £9 - I paid £4.50 with my ArtFund pass - to be honest, I felt this was what it was worth. The exhibition is 50 Years of the Designers Guild, a company based in West London. It was interesting to see their designs over their 50 year existence and to see how the designs and methods of production have changed/stayed the same over the years. Settings showing individual styles were interesting, as was a video featuring the company owner. Exhibitions are obviously expensive to set up, but my only criticism is that it appeared to be a big marketing exercise for the Designers Guild! I would like to go back when the emphasis is more on fashion.
