1,235 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.

This place is just awful. I went to see a DJ here and knew immediately it was a terrible idea. I would have gone straight home but could see my wife was trying to make the best of it, so stuck it out. It was so quiet I could hear all the conversations around me (I was near the front), and it sounded more like I was listening to a festival going about a mile away than being in a venue. Also, be prepared to wait a good ten minutes at an overpriced bar to get an overpriced drink. Wait for your chosen artist to appear at a better venue.

Would like to give a massive shoutout to the female security staff member who helped my daughter out at the Melanie Martinez concert 17/2/20. Some vile old soak threw a drink over her because she wanted the space in front of her kept empty. Anyway the lovely lady located my daughter and friend and relocated them to great spot and made their night a success. I never managed to get your name or thank you at the end but we are truly great full for what you done.

Lets start off with the good things. The staff, door and box office were superb, no fault with them. Im disabled, so stood behind the sound desk, surely you're gonna get good sound there, how wrong I was. Support band who id seen a month previous in a small venue were amazing with great sound. Here they sounded like a band that had been together for a month. Vocal, bass, were so bad you couldn't understand a thing the singer said. Fontaines DC who we had seen 4 times before and are a great band were destroyed by the sound. The left side speakers dipped in and out all night, they looked like they were hating it. It was just awful. The leaving, the crush is scary. Someone will get killed in a crush unless something is done about it. I for one will never go back to this venue, id encourage others to find somewhere else

Went to see The Cinematic Orchestra last night (Sat 22nd Feb 2020) in a party of 4 and ended up utterly disappointed. Mainly with the sound quality that reached us, all muffled and feedbacked, would say completely inaudible, from low to high pitches, from the support acts through to the main one. We were on the left side of the balcony, perhaps the sound was better at the ground floor on in some other spots, yet would never imagine experiencing this in apparently one of the main live music venues of London and the UK, where there's basically events every night with top notch artists. I could see some people not impressed from the main acts hanging on waiting for the main act, only to start leaving half way trough the set, and a great number of others taking the opportunity at the cliche encore to jump from their seats and leave. For a musical project of the nature of CO, where subtleties and dynamics are key, you could not glimpse a fraction of what you do with the studio versions, which was a shame for fans going there and for the band. Perhaps they could invest in improving acoustics in the room, as basically everything in there seems made of concrete, from ceiling to stands and floor, just saying. Organisation wasn't the best either, with event start time advertised at 7pm, and once you get in you see a handwritten paper in the wall saying the main act will start at 9:45pm (that's almost 3 hours from the time written in the ticket)... not the best start when you had to book babysitter for the baby and realise you won't be home before 12am. Bar wasn't too busy but drinks a bit over expensive (nearly £20 for 3 beers), and was shocked to see that there was no draught drinks, despite them pooring all bottles and cans on plastic glasses, which actually means they are producing thousands of unnecessary waste items every day. 2020, should this be allowed? Not to mention they would save money with tap drinks and could perhaps charge a bit less... Overall, an awful experience, and would probably not be coming back anytime soon and will look forward to see any fav artists in some other venue instead.
