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.

This place is fantastic. I was visiting my girlfriend from America and had heard things about this gin palace before and wanted to check it out. This is a lot of history here, the atmosphere is lovely, and the staff are so kind and welcoming. We came back a second time and were greeted as though we'd been there a hundred times before. Didn't catch their names but a male server with glasses and a black-haired, female server with glasses were both very kind to us. We're an openly gay couple and were treated with the utmost respect and with nothing but friendly, sweet attitudes. The drinks and food were delicious, especially the hummus; it's easily the best hummus and bread I have ever had in my life. I could have spent hours here every single day. If you're looking for a laid back atmosphere, great staff and awesome food and drinks, check this place out!

My husband and I came here for a few drinks whilst walking around London. Traditional Victorian pub with traditional decor and a good selection of beers/ales. Good atmosphere, friendly bar staff and reasonably priced. Asked for a tour of the cellars to see the resident ghost but no-one was available on this occasion. Perhaps the next time!

We were looking for something a little different and came across this great find on our way back to our hotel. The Viaduct Tavern was not too busy ay 3:45 pm on a Thursday. We were able to get a table. My wife found a wonderful warm berry and gin cocktail. I was interested in the basic Gin & Tonic. Their house gin is Tanqueray with a premium Indian Tonic, add a slice of fresh lime in a glass with hand chiseled ice and there you have it. The drink with a Toastie side—ham and cheese or the mushroom option — made for a great mid- day snack. A definitely great stop filled with wonderful history.

Food and beer were good. The bartender is a great guy and if you come at a slow time of day, they may show you the basement too.
