LONDON'S LEADING JACK THE RIPPER TOUR
LED BY PUBLISHED AUTHORS AND SPECIALISTS
As twilight unfolds across the sinister thoroughfares of London's East End and as the shadows lengthen across its cobblestone courtyards and tucked away passageways, this original expert led Jack the Ripper Tour sets off into the dark alleyways and darker recesses of Whitechapel to follow the ripper's bloodstained trail of terror.

AND SEE US IN ACTION
Step by bloodcurdling step you will find yourself spirited back in time to the dark autumn nights of 1888 when Jack The Ripper prowled the very thoroughfares you will explore and the people of the area walked in fear.
This was the original Aldgate East Jack the Ripper Tour founded by best-selling author and broadcaster Richard Jones in 1982.
With 30 years experience of introducing Londoners and visitors alike to the world's greatest murder mystery, Richard and his dedicated team of expert guides (including Jack the Ripper authors and historians Philip Hutchinson, John Bennett and Lindsay Siviter) have both the experience and the expertise to ensure that you enjoy an informative and entertaining experience.
THE JACK THE RIPPER WALK THAT EXCEEDS EXPECTATIONS
"...We have completed the walk on a number of occasions in the past with a different company and this was much better.
This walk exceeded all our expectations after the previous visits with a different company when we have been left disappointed."
SANDRA MCMAHON - THE THOMAS AVELING SCHOOL
ON THIS TOUR YOU'LL WALK WITH HIM
Beginning at the epicentre of the district in which the infamous crimes took place you will step straight into the old, atmospheric and dimly-lit thoroughfares that have changed little - if at all - since that long ago era of gaslight and terror.

WITH PHILIP HUTCHINSON
Here, as you walk in the footsteps of Jack the Ripper, you will gain an unrivalled insight in to the neighbourhood where he carried on his murderous spree.
You will see the streets and buildings as they were when the ripper stalked their shadows and those who lived hereabouts walked in daily fear of him.
You will see for yourself how the labyrinth-like layout of its streets and passageways enabled him to commit his ghastly crimes whilst, at the same time, affording him the perfect escape routes via which he could simply melt away into the night both unseen and undetected.
And, with our tour, you will be starting right in the heart of the district where the murders occurred and will go straight into the cobbled alleyways that are just as they were at the time of the Jack the Ripper murders.
YOU'LL BE GUIDED BY EXPERTS
