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

1,240 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.

A visit to Forbidden Planet is always a treat even if you don't spend, just browsing some of the merchandise on sale is great, get your money ready after traversing the one way system.

The staff is rude and ignores paying customers while they discuss left-wing politics. I sincerely hope this place will go out of business :)

If you are into sci-fi, fantasy, manga or quirky stuff then make sure you pay a visit to Forbidden Planet. It's on Shaftesbury Avenue and a short walk from Covent Garden, Tottenham Court Road tube station and Chinatown. The store caters well for people in wheelchairs. They can access the basement as well as the ground floor as there is a lift. The comics and books and in the basement and there are gifts, collectibles, figures and models on the ground floor. The staff are all friendly and approachable and know their stuff. Definitely well worth checking out.
