Useful information

The East End of London in the late nineteenth century was haunted by the spectre of a serial killer. The identity of Jack the Ripper, as the murderer became known because of his grisly methods, is still not known. His victims were all woman, suspected to be prostitutes. The East End today is one of London's most fashionable districts, but in the 1880s these narrow streets were no place to be after dark as the fog came in.

Your Jack the Ripper walking tour takes you down those streets. Step into the pub where the Ripper is said to have met some of his victims. It might now be a hipster joint serving craft ales but shut your eyes and it's easy to remember a rough drinking house with sawdust on the floors and horses tied up outside. The walk doesn't spare on gruesome detail as you visit the places where The Ripper's victims were found and hear speculation, still rife to this day, on the identity of the killer. There's even an eerie air to the ancient church where there's a memorial to the last of Jack The Ripper's victims. This walking tour reminds us all of a dark part of London's past, in a neighbourhood that's now one of its most desirable places to live.
