About the tour

Discover one of London’s darkest chapters: the shocking murders of Jack the Ripper. This walking tour promises chills and frights as we visit the locations of the Whitechapel Murders, discover more about the victims and the gruesome details of their murders and explore the conspiracy theories surrounding the identity of the killer. Learn about the world’s most chilling, unsolved murder mystery!

Join us as we delve into some of the fascinating and mysterious facts behind London’s most infamous murders. Throughout the tour, you can learn more about the possible suspects who are believed to be behind the murders; such as Lewis Carroll, Aaron Kosminski, Thomas Cutbush or Montague John Druitt. Hear more about Jack The Ripper’s five famous victims: Mary Nichols, Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Eddowes and Mary Kelly.

Some of the many famous Ripper-related sites covered in our tour include Gunthorpe Street, where Martha Tabram was seen walking with her killer on August 8th, 1888; before she was murdered. The Frying Pan Pub, where Mary Nichols was last seen. And The Ten Bells Pub, a site where many of Jack The Ripper’s victims were spotted before they were murdered. We also take a stroll past the Goulston Street doorway, now home to the ironically-titled Happy Days Fish and Chip Shop; the only location where police found a clue related to the murders.

So come and immerse yourself in Victorian London, as you navigate the grit of 19th century Whitechapel, now a fashionable area of London, but a place that was described as hell when the murders took place. Follow the traces and clues, listen to all the theories and then maybe come up with one of your own. Though, we all know the mystery of Jack the Ripper will outlive us all!

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!
