Jack The Ripper Tour

On this 2 hour Jack the Ripper Touryou will get to explore how an Autumn of Terror in 1888 can still send a shiver down your spine to this very day.

The discovery of a body on 31 August 1888 in London’s East End set in motion one of the most famous man-hunts in criminal history. For over 120 years Ripperologists and amateur sleuths have been trying and failing to discover the identity of the man known as Jack the Ripper!

Throughout the Jack the Ripper Touryou will explore the historical background of the Whitechapel murders and their passing into a genre almost in their own right. We will examine how public perception of these gruesome but gripping murders has been shaped and compare that to the reality of 1888.

As with all our walking tours we limit the size of the group for the Jack the Ripper Tour to 25 people to ensure you have a positive experience and can see and hear the guide easily. Customer Reviews. This tour is also available in French.
