PLACES TO STAY IN THE AREA
THE CLOSEST LONDON HOTEL
From time to time we do get enquiries from our clients about hotels or B and B's that they can stay in if they are travelling to London to take our Jack the Ripper Walk. Here are a few suggestions.
HOTEL IBIS LONDON CITY
5 Commercial Street, E1 6BF
Telephone 020 7422-8400
The Hotel Ibis London City is close to the starting point for our Jack the Ripper Tour and is conveniently situated next to Aldgate East Underground Station.
To reach the tour from the Ibis, simply come out of the hotel's front door, turn right along Commercial Street, go left at the traffic lights along Whitechapel High Street and, when you reach the White Hart Pub, you will see the Habib Bank on the opposite side of the street.
Cross over to it via the pedestrian crossing and you will be outside Exit Four of Aldgate East Underground Station where our tour meets.
12-20 Osborn Street, E1 6TE
Telephone 020 7247-3313
The City Hotel is also very convenient for the starting point of our Jack the Ripper Tour. It is situated on Osborn Street which connects Whitechapel Road to Brick Lane.
You should be aware that this stretch of road can be very busy at night, so it might be worth requesting a room that doesn't overlook it.
To reach the start of our tour from the City Hotel, come out of the hotel, go left along Osborn Street, turn right at the traffic lights, along Whitechapel High Street and descend the steps into Aldgate East Underground Station on the right.
Once in the booking hall just keep ahead, go out of Exit Four and our Jack the Ripper tour meets on the pavement directly outside this exit.
NEW HOTEL OPENING SOON
The owners of the Sheraz Restaurant on Brick Lane have converted the upper floors into a hotel (the work is currently on going).
Richard was recently given a sneak preview of the rooms and they were spacious and luxuriously furnished. It's going to be a great hotel.
We'll post details here when the hotel opens.
