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

1,232 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.

One of several comic shops in central London, not the best but worth a viewing, reasonable stock of back issues, friendly layout and currently a nice David bowie artwork display.

POW! Orbital Comics is one the most idiosyncratic places I have ever visited. (MEANWHILE... It's impossible to use the word 'idiosyncratic' and not sound like a numpty.) ZAP! Walking through the entrance was like stepping back into an era before these kind of stores became so homogenized and clean. BAM! It looks like a set they'd record on film in the nineties, and you feel like John Cusack walking around in his Cosby sweater there. BOOM! The place is filled wall-to-wall with single trade paperbacks, undiscovered indie gems, manga (wo)man, and toys from almost every decade (including the Raphael TMNT figure that made you cry in Christmas 1989 and the POP Funko Deadpool you're missing in 2018). SPLAT! AND THEN... You really should bring your kids here if you want them to experience time travel too. SO... If you have any interest in pop culture, you should pay this place a visit at least once. You'll only regret it if you don't! SKIKT!

Had a browse in this comic shop located in Leicester Square and this really is a comic book paradise and it is hard to keep your hands in your pocket. Just want to buy loads. Wife had to drag me out!

If you like Comic books and Graphic Novels this is just one of a few geek shops to visit near Leicester square, and its well worth your time, large back issue area, helpful staff and a great place to open your wallet.

Thank goodness for the popularity of Superhero movies and The Big Bang Theory, as I'm sure they are helping to keep this store open. As an uncover nerd, I've been buying comics from here for many years. There is a fantastic mix of old, recent and new comics. The real die hards are in the back, sifting through boxes and boxes of comics. It's not a place for tourists or those hoping to buy the latest action figure, but if you wonder in, you'll be pleasantly surprised at what you'll find. Artist and animators will love the art work. Collectors will find much of what they want.
