Return Details

Trafalgar Square, West End, London, UK
Depart from a central London location and feel your heart rate quicken as you set out into the night. Pop in your technologically advanced Vox headphones and visualize Victorian London as your guide sets the sinister scene; imagine the darkened alleys of the East End and feel the paralyzing fear of locals who have just discovered a vicious serial killer is at large. 

Venture past the dim and dreadful Drury Lane to discover terrifying tales about London’s most haunted theater; see the imposing structure of the Old Bailey, an old courthouse at which countless public executions occurred; and, visit the former residence of the demonic barber Sweeney Todd on Fleet Street, whose accomplice, Mrs. Lovett, baked pies containing the flesh of his victims. 

Arrive at Whitechapel and disembark your coach to explore some the unnerving murder sites of Jack the Ripper. Hear gruesome tales of grisly murders and discuss some of the prime suspects with your guide, discovering that even Queen Victoria’s grandson was suspected. Stroll past the Ten Bell’s Pub, a favorite social spot of Jack the Ripper’s innocent victims, then conclude your tour with a calming drink (own expense) in an ambient Trafalgar Square pub.
Itinerary
Pass By:  
Trafalgar Square
Throughout the summer of 1887, much to the consternation of the authorities, the poor and the destitute of London had been congregating in Trafalgar Square to sleep rough in the open air. By October this was being seen in official circles as a direct challenge to the forces of law, and order and the Home Secretary, Sir Henry Matthews, tasked Sir Charles Warren, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, with ensuring that the practice was stamped out sooner rather than later.
Pass By:  
Fleet Street
Sweeney Todd, "The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" first came to prominence in the mid 19th century since when he has appeared in books, plays, a musical and in films. His gruesome story caught the public imagination yet again in 2008 when Johnny Depp played him in Tim Burton's film Sweeney Todd. But who was this murderous barber, and when, if ever, did he live?
Stop At:

Whitechapel Road
For three months during the late 19th century, the Whitechapel area of London was enveloped in fear. During this period, a series of murders known as the 'Whitechapel Murders' took place; five women were murdered and brutally mutilated by a killer that was never caught. To this day, the identity of the killer remains a mystery, and well over a hundred theories exist today that attempt to lift the veil on the identity of one of history's most elusive murderers. Wander the same dark, cobbled streets and alleyways as the Ripper's victims and visit the murder sites as our expert tour guide reveals the gruesome, horrific details behind their deaths and how the killer mutilated his victims in trademark fashion. Listen as our expert tour guide brings the history of 19th century Whitechapel to life and reveals an area gripped by fear and uncertainty.
Duration: 45 minutes
Admission Ticket Not Included
Stop At:

Our guide on this tour was John. He is extremely knowledgable and a very passionate story teller. The tour itself was very good, but John made it even better. As an added bonus, we stopped for a small serving of authentic fish and chips. We highly recommend this tour!

Our driver Nicholas and our tour guide Rhys were friendly and perfectly punctual for the beginning of our tour. Rhys is very knowledgeable on all aspects of the tour, from the short bus trip past some major historical points of interest and points of interest which are key to the story of the white chapel murders. The vox box system was perfect to be able to hear our tour guide as we walked the narrow darkened streets and the fish and chips was a really brilliant extra! Nicholas’ driving through the streets must be commended also, safety was high on both of the driver and tour guides agenda. Highly recommend this tour even if your not a “ripper” fan, you will be afterwards 😜

It was an amazing tour to all the spots of Jack the Rippers murders. John, our guide, was very enthusiastic and he showed a lot of knowledge of this topic. He even gave us general information on London's history. I would recommend this tour to everyone who is interested in the dark side of London's history.
