Description

Who was Jack the Ripper? Delve into the world of Victorian London and discover the victims, suspects and the gruesome story behind the unidentified killer, on this ominous and entertaining free walking tour.

In the early hours of 31 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 Mary Ann Nichols, 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 true identity of the man they called Jack the Ripper.

During the walking tour you will follow the shadowy trail left by Jack the Ripper through East London's Whitechapel in the Victorian era, coming across the places where the grisly murders took place. Begin at Aldgate East underground station, before continuing down Aldgate High Street to Mitre Square, where the serial killer infamously claimed two unlucky victims, Elizabeth Stride and Catherine Eddowes, leaving their bodies in the street.

The 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 the notorious Hanbury Street, where the body of horrifically mutilated Annie Chapman was discovered. Play detective during this marvellously morbid walking tour and see some famous London sights too.
