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.

Located just 15 minutes walk from Colindale tube station, offers excellent collection of of planes with Avro Vulcan as a cherry on top. As we are focused at II WW we felt like we were in heaven in hangars 3, 4 and 5. Highly recommend.

Good to return here with our 5 year old grandson. There is so much to see and do for all ages. At present, due to covid-19 restrictions, you have to pre-book on line an arrival time even though it is a free museum. Numbers for every 15 minute arrival time are limited. There are six separate hangers full of aircraft and related RAF exhibits from some of the earliest flying machines to 21st century weapons. There are still a few hands-on activities to do although at present most are off limits, labelled "no fly zone"! One hanger is devoted to the history of the Hendon site - the location of the first London aerodrome. There is a good Children's playground (aircraft themed) and a nice cafe.

Amazing given it’s free so please donate generously. There are inferior places that would charge £20 plus . The exhibits are superb. Only let down was cafe, so small and if alone nowhere to sit. Also a family none of which had masks on. Perhaps they all had exempt issues all five of them.

6 hangars rammed full of real aircraft across the last 100 years. WW1 and WW2 are well covered with an amazing collection from the Battle of Britain

We visited on a Friday about 11am. Tickets are free but you need to book online ahead of your visit. We made a voluntary donation by debit card when there, This is optional and given the great time we had was worthwhile giving.Parknig is available up to £6 for all day. We felt totally safe from COVID. A great time taking photos of the aeroplanes, helicopters etc. Really quite too. Masks were to be worn when inside. Lots to see and do. All interactive displays were closed due to Covid but this did not stop us having a good time. Cafe was open as was the gift shop. Would highly recommend, Spitfires, Hurrican, Lancaster (and loads more) - what not to like.
