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 😀.

Went on the 3pm Saturday afternoon walk and our guide was Peter who was very good. Started at Tower Hill tube station and over the next couple of hours made our way over to Spitalfields Market, which is where the tour ended. About 15 on the walk, so it was easy to hear what our guide was saying. Relatively easy... More

So my 26 year old son went on this tour. We were so excited to go on this tour as it was at night. We met the tour guide at the set location. There were a lot of people so they broke us up into 2 groups. There is a lot of history in the tour, but if you have... More

I was very much looking forward to taking this tour, led by the renowned Mr. Rumbelow, when I visited London in 2012. But shortly after I joined the group and paid my fee, Mr. Rumbelow's assistant (who, I assumed was Mrs. Rumbelow) suggested that I hadn't paid my admission. I politely assured the two of them that I had, but... More

We Went on the Jack the ripper Walking Tour and were really excited about it. Our Tour guide was called Phil. We already had a Hard Time understanding his English when we first arrived so we politely asked him to speak a Little more clearly. He was very offended straight away and told us that he cannot pay attention to... More

There are many tours on this subject but go for London Walks as they really are, in my opinion, the best. Guides vary but we had Karen who was energized, poetic, audible and totally animated. She knew her subject and seemed to tailor it for our group. An excellent guide and made me want to go on more of her... More

My friend and I decided at the late minute to join the Jack the Ripper walk around White Chapel. We were greeted with open arms upon our arrival and our tour guide JJ immediately inquired about where we are from, how we heard about the tour, and really made good individualized conversation despite about 25 other people gathered around. As... More

We enjoy walking tours when we travel to different countries. We thought this tour would be a good one based on travelers' reviews and based on the guide that was on the schedule for the evening (Donald). Unfortunately Donald was ill, so other guides filled in. Our guide had a lot of historical knowledge about Jack the Ripper. The bad... More

Staying in Whitechapel

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.
