Tour description

Jack the Ripper Tour is a unique free tour in London that transports you back to Victorian London. We will explore the poorest and most dangerous alleyways that, in the 19th century, were the crime scenes of gruesome murders committed by this still unidentified serial killer.

The walking tour begins in the Tower Hill area and continues in Whitechapel, which was sadly known as the ‘Doors to Hell’ during that era. The darkness of a late evening enhances the experience, allowing you to immerse yourself in the gloomy atmosphere.

During this free tour in London, you will learn about all the victims, suspects, and conspiracy theories that will help you unravel the mystery behind Jack the Ripper’s murders.

Who was he? Some believe he was a doctor, others a butcher. What do you think? Be a detective for a day and use our clues to build your own theory!

Here is a preview of our itinerary:

  • we will start outside Tower Gateway DLR Station
  • we will explore the alleyways of Whitechapel
