Owner description: Ripping Yarns have been the leading Jack the Ripper tour into Whitechapel for over 25 years. We remain a small Company who believe that small Group Sizes and personal interaction will surpass your expectations, as opposed to the Larger Advertised Companies who now Operate in the area. The Tour is recommended in the Rick Steves Guide book to London. The cost is just £8.00, Where else could you get a great night in London for that price? But perhaps the best measure of the Tour comes from our many customers. which are a fitting testament to the level of satisfaction. All the Guides are serving Yeoman Warders (Beefeaters) at the Tower of London, so you can be assured that your Guide knows how to conduct a tour properly and "tell a tale" the content is such that it weaves the story of Jack the Ripper, the social background and the history of the area, helping to paint the most vivid mental picture of life and death in London's East End, this is backed up by Crime Scene Photographs, Letters and Evidence, you will not just get some "off pat script" or gimmicks but an up close and personal story.

Had a wonderful tour of Whitechapel by a brilliant tour guide Barney. He was so informative and really brought the tale to life.
Went with a group of 9, Barney managed to keep us and the other visitors enthralled from beginning to end.
Plenty of descriptive anecdotes and felt that the tale was brought to life all the way around, was surprised that it lasted so long!
Well done Barney! would recommend to anyone....

Recently we took this tour... and it was one the best things we've experienced in London! Our tour guide was Dickie - probably one of the best tour guides you can imagine! He really knows how to make a dramatic atmosphere, he knows probably everything what is known about jack the ripper, showed us interesting photos, even letters, and he has a great sense of humor as well - we all simply loved him :) the tour lasted over 2 hours and we enjoyed every minute. I can only recommend it to everybody!

We've recently been guided through the streets of Whitechapel by Jimmy. He was by far the best tour guide; very clear loud voice which kept everyone gripped from start to finish. We were part of a very large group but Jimmy had no problem keeping us all together. Fantastic value for money; the tour lasted over 2 hours! Worth every penny and more! We couldn't have wished for a better experience so if you fancy the tour, get it done!

We have just had a tour with Jimmy. And we couldn't rate him any higher. Although we had a large group, Jimmy kept us altogether and entertained with his great knowledge of Jack the Ripper.
