What you'll do

We will take you on a walk through the dark and narrow streets of London's famous Victorian East End. We will trace the footsteps and crime scenes of the murders Jack the Ripper committed. This tour is not for the faint hearted.

Allow us to set the scene…

It is the autumn of 1888, and a sinister serial killer is loose on the streets of London’s East End. At first he is known simply as ‘The Whitechapel Murderer’. But in time, thanks to a mysterious letter sent to a London news agency (a copy of which you will be shown in the course of the walk), he will become known as ‘Jack the Ripper,’ in which capacity his name will become famous throughout the world.

You will see
- The places and buildings where his victims were murdered and found
- Streets, buildings and alleyways that have hardly changed since 1888
- The pubs and buildings where his victims drank, worked and lived
- The doorway where Jack the Ripper’s only clue was discovered
- Police photos of the victims and evidence
Other things to note
Bring an umbrella if it is raining (or look likes rain)

Lots of opportunities for photos, bring a camera

Remember comfy shoes, there is a little walking involved

Jack the Ripper is a gruesome and unsolved part of London's history. We have lived in the centre of London for over 20 years (We lived for 5 years right in Whitechapel, the East End of London, where the Jack the Ripper murders took place). We have worked in the square mile (financial district) which borders the East End and know the pubs, and restaurants and buildings that were standing in 1888 when the murders took place. We have our theories of who Jack the Ripper was.... This is one of our favourite pieces of London history as it contains a Royal link......

It’s just mind-blowing to think about how much people struggled to survive in these very streets we walked through tonight. I found the stories of the locals who lived around the East End in the times of Jack the Ripper to be harrowing in the challenges they faced (even without a sociopathic serial killer on the loose). Thank you for bringing the history of the streets alive.. your narrative was very engaging!

This was a whirlwind tour that covered so much. Jo was amazing. She was very knowledgeable and took extra time to allow our group to take as many pictures we wanted. Best tour ever. Thank you Jo.

Johnny did the tour with our group. He even dressed the part which was a nice touch. He was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the subject. I lost track of time as he gave fascinating information about Jack the Ripper. He showed photos, read out a letter from memory and even projected images onto walls. Overall an excellent tour and highly recommended.

This was amazing! A whole new and unique outlook on the Ripper, and cleared out many myths and doubts me and the whole group had. It was a bit more crowded than expected, but that didn't diminish the quality of the experience at all. I'd recommend it to everyone who wants to have a lowkey spooky but highkey entertaining and informative experience in London!

El tour valió la pena. Me gusto conocer esa otra parte de la historia de Londres Victoriano en los barrios más difíciles y pobres. Complementar el tour con proyecciones de la época lo vuelve mas real y permite transportarte. La guía mostró amplio conocimiento sobre el tema.

We had Jamie as our tour guide and hands down this has been one of the best tours I have done. I have complete a Ghost tour in Scotland, and Ghost/murder tour in Sydney- Australia. Jamie was very passionate and informative, he also made the night entertaining with his quick wit and humour. Thank you so much...Jo and Alex from Perth Western Australia
