Delve into the world of Victorian London at its most grisly during this fascinatingly frightful Jack the Ripper Walking Tour. In the early house of 31st August 1888, a man walking to work down a dark lane in Whitechapel found a shapeless bundle lying on the ground. He went to investigate and found an East End prostitute murdered in the most gruesome way. This was the first of many killings, sparking one of the most famous man hunts in the world. 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!
