On this 2 hour Jack the Ripper Tour, you 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 manhunts 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 Tour, you 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.
Please note: This tour is wheelchair accessible for ‘manual’ chairs and narrow electric mobility scooters. For wider electric wheelchairs, whole sections of the tour are not accessible, owing to cars parked up on pavements. Wheelchair users would need to arrive at the meeting point either by cab, car or bus, as there are only stairs up to street level at Aldgate East tube station.
