Delve into the world of Victorian London at its most grisly during this fascinatingly frightful Jack the Ripper Walking Tour. A nationwide manhunt began after a man found a gruesomely murdered prostitute on the streets of Whitechapel in 1888 – and more killings followed! Ripperologists and amateur sleuths are still trying to work out the identity of the man they called Jack the Ripper!
During this walking tour you will follow the shadowy trail left by Jack the Ripper through East London’s Whitechapel. You will begin at Trader’s Gate before continuing down Aldgate High Street to Mitre Square – where the serial killer infamously claimed two unlucky victims and left their bodies in the street.
Our next stop is Goulston Street, where arguably the most vital clue to solving the case of Jack the Ripper could be found! Ramble down Commercial Street before arriving at notorious Hanbury Street, where the body of horrifically mutilated Anne Chapman was discovered. Play detective during this marvellously morbid walking tour and see some famous London sights too!
The tour will finish at approximately 7.30pm near Liverpool Street Station.

During your 90 minute adventure, you’ll come face to face with the infamous Guy Fawkes and his notorious plan to blow up the Houses of Parliament before moving onto the panic of the Great Fire of London. But have your wits about you as you wander the streets of rat-infested London as you’ll be stopping off at Sweeney Todd’s barber shop and those pies definitely aren’t full of pork!
