Free Jack the Ripper Tour*
When: Every day
Where: Tower Hill Station
Language: English & Spanish
Duration: 2 hours
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 killings, and explore the conspiracy theories surrounding the identity of the killer.
Join us as we delve into mysterious facts behind London’s most infamous murders. Throughout the tour you’ll learn more about the possible suspects who are believed to be behind the murders and about Jack The Ripper’s five known 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, the Frying Pan Pub, and The Ten Bells Pub, a site where many of Jack’s victims were spotted before they were slaughtered. 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 unfortunate deaths.
So come and immerse yourself in Victorian London with your Sherlock hat on, follow the traces and clues, listen to all the theories and then maybe come up with one of your own whodunnit murder mystery tales!
I went on the Jack the Ripper walking tour expecting it to be a fairly basic, entertaining 2 hours, but my expectations were certainly exceeded!! Our tour guide Nathan was so charming, funny and friendly; answering all our questions and going the extra mile to make sure we all had a fun time! The tour itself was quite information heavy but Nathan brought life to all the stories and the gory stories sent shivers down my spine!! Would definitely recommend this tour to families, tourists and London locals! Nathan was an amazing guide and it was a brilliant spooooky evening well spent.

We had the pleasure of having Ed take around the various focal points of East London related to the Jack the Ripper Events of 1888. We consider ourselves fortunate to have had him, as we turned up and it was raining, and continued to do so for the entirety of the tour, but you would not have realised, as it was such an enjoyable experience. Ed was knowledgeable, and was able to balance comedy with the volume of information he gave at each location. Thankyou Ed for a great tour!
