I had a small group with amazing people- a criminologist was on our tour, so the theories were thought provoking. The tour was informative and Scott is a good actor,a good evening... read more

During our recent London visit we took the London Walks "Jack the Ripper Haunts" walk with our guide Simon, who was absolutely amazing! Simon really breathed life into the tour as he was so enthusiastic, energetic, informative, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. Well done!

We decided to do our tour at night for the atmosphere, great choice. Our guide brought along his tablet to show us various photos from the time, along the way. It was quite tame to begin with but by the third 'stop', one member from our group felt faint, possibly after viewing one of the graphic photos. Some of the... More

Our guide explained lots of things about Jack the Ripper and also, of the architecture of some buildings. When the tour finished, we applaud at him.We did the tour... More

We took the evening walk on Tuesday September 6th. Very disappointing. The guide made little effort to make the walk "fun", instead this tour was characterized by a dry monologue, lots of walking, followed by another dry monologue, and more walking. I have previously been a big fan of London Walks' Jack the Ripper Tour, and have recommended it for... More

Our mistake was doing the walking tour on our first night in London after having traveled overnight. We were suffering from jet lag and a lack of sleep. Otherwise, it would have been a great experience. The tour guide was knowledgable and kept things interesting. The tour lasts about 1.5 to 2 hours.

A superb time. I have read several books on the case and believed I knew it all. But god I was wrong. Our guide was very knowledgeable and he was certainly not boring, I enjoyed it. Highly recommended 😀.

Neighborhood Profile
Whitechapel
Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden squares, these days you're more likely to catch a cutting edge fashionista scurrying through its age old lanes than criminals of any sort.
