WHY CHOOSE OUR JACK THE RIPPER WALK?
LET US INTRODUCE YOU TO THE CASE ON THIS FILM
EXPERT GUIDES, SMALL GROUP SIZES AND AN ATMOSPHERIC ROUTE
We've been conducting our Jack the Ripper London walks since 1982, which has given us over twenty seven years to ensure we've got it right!
When you join us for one of our London walks around Jack the Ripper's East End you will be joining the experts on both the Jack the Ripper story and on guiding walks in the capital.
Furthermore because it is essential to book for our tours you will be part of a smaller more intimate group than the "just turn up" cattle drives that have given the Jack the Ripper Walks such a bad name in the area and on internet travel forums.
We also start at the epicentre of the area where the Jack the Ripper murders occurred and follow a more atmospheric route that visits more actual murder sites than any other Jack the Ripper Tour.
PUBLISHED AUTHORS AND TOP NOTCH RESEARCHERS
Three of our guides have published books on the subject, and five of them have appeared as interviewees on the majority of the Jack the Ripper documentaries that have been produced over the last ten years.
In addition, we are the only London walks company to have produced our own critically acclaimed drama-documentary Unmasking Jack the Ripper.
In short, we are able to offer you an unequalled degree of knowledge and expertise about the Jack the Ripper case.
WE OFFER YOU SOME GREAT BLUE BADGE GUIDES
Several of our guides have undergone rigorous training and examinations to earn the highest accolade in the British Tourism industry - the Blue Badge.
A MUCH BETTER PLACE TO START YOUR JACK THE RIPPER TOUR
These guides know about guiding and have, over the years, done Jack the Ripper London walks from other stations, such as Tower Hill. They are therefore in a position to make legitimate comparisons and have commented on several occasions that our starting point of Aldgate East Underground Station is the best place from which to begin a Jack the Ripper London walk.
AND WE LIMIT THE NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS
A major difference between us and other Jack the Ripper London Walking tours is that we are the only company that limits the number of participants on our tours to a sensible and manageable number. With us you won't be marched round the streets in a massive cattle drive with 75, 80 or even 100 other people and just one guide. Would you really enjoy that? We ask you to book so that you can avoid such a nightmare scenario.
The upside of this unique approach is that we can actually get you into the narrow, creepier alleyways where the ambience of Victorian London still holds sway.
HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR JACK THE RIPPER WALK INCLUDE
- The former Frying Pan Pub where the first definite victim of Jack the Ripper, Mary Nichols, was drinking shortly before her body was discovered nearby.
- The building which, more than any other in the area, reflects the changing immigration patterns in the district and which was most certainly here in 1888.
- A wonderfully atmospheric warren of 18th century streets lined with houses that formed the backcloth against which the Jack the Ripper sage was played out.
- The soaring white spire of the church that dominates the district today - just as it did in 1888 - and upon which the victims of Jack the Ripper would have gazed on an almost daily basis.
- The old convent where Mary Kelly, the last victim of Jack the Ripper, reputedly sought shelter shortly before she was murdered.
- The doorway where Jack the Ripper's ONLY clue was discovered.
DON'T SETTLE FOR ANYTHING LESS
So if you want to really get to grips with the mystery of Jack the Ripper.

If you want to be guided by experts who know the Jack the Ripper subject inside out and who are both able and willing to answer any questions you might have.
If you want to see actual Victorian photographs of the streets through which you are walking as they looked in 1888 at the time of the Jack the Ripper murders.
If you want to follow the murders in chronological order by way of a route that takes you into streets that are still just as they were in 1888.
