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

1,260 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.

considering we are in a pandemic i am happy to see museums like this open. Very sad that the galleries are limited in how much there is with the second floor completely closed but what is there is very interesting, engaging and thought provoking.

I took a date to the Wellcome Collection to see the ‘Play Well’ exhibition. It was our first date and the first time I’d visited the museum and I had high hopes for both but unfortunately I was disappointed on both counts. The exhibit intended to show how play shapes childhood and society and there were displays of historic toys and games, a video, and a ‘LARP’, or live action role-play. However, none of it inspired any excitement or wonder: the LARP was abandoned, the video was dull, and the displays were so sparse that most of the cabinets looked empty. My date was a child psychiatrist and she got a bit more out of it than I did, probably because she was in the business, but to a layman with no specific interest in the topic, the exhibit was insipid and it struck me as ironic that an exhibition about play was neither fun nor playful at all. I was more pleased with the venue. The Wellcome Building’s façade is grand and impressive, with neoclassical columns and pediment. This contrasts with a very modern interior, which includes the exhibition area, a large gift shop, café and unisex toilets. Even though it’s large inside, it is very well-organised and easy to find your way around. The coffee is good and, if I’m honest, I found the gift shop more enjoyable than the exhibition because there were lots of interesting books and objects to browse and buy. As with the exhibition, there was no spark between me and my date either and I didn’t see her a second time. However, I would return to the Wellcome Collection a second time because the venue is good, I just need to see a better exhibition.

An interesting day with great exhibits included in several exhibitions. From an eclectic exhibition of items collected by mr wellcome to an exhibition of being human to a child’s developmental progress over the generations. Plenty to interest to each generation. Plus A good cafeteria on floor ‘0’ to a restaurant on floor ‘1’ Also an interesting bookstore with an elective selection for all generations. Well worth a visit.

This exhibit about play is very interesting. You can see how ideas about play have entered on consciousness. See new trends in toys, such as more inclusive dolls. The Barbie Liberation Organization exhibit was quite interesting.
