Jack the Ripper: Chronological Crime Tour


Jack the Ripper: Chronological Crime Tour

Step back in time on our Jack the Ripper: Chronological Crime Tour, a gripping 2-hour journey through the dark and narrow lanes of Whitechapel. Unlike typical tours, this experience focuses on all five of the canonical murder sites, exploring them in the order the tragic events unfolded over a century ago.

Meet us at the Whitechapel Tube Station, where our expert guide will set the scene for the chilling narrative of 1888, a year that left a permanent mark on London's East End. As we visit each site, our focus will shift towards the lives of the victims, offering a respectful and poignant look at the women who found themselves in the path of one of history's most notorious criminals.

Traverse the same cobbled streets and shadowed alleyways where these historical crimes took place, each step echoing with the stories of the past. While accessibility in this area can be challenging due to its historical architecture, we ensure a manageable pace for all participants, helping everyone immerse fully in the mystery of the Whitechapel murders.

Join us for a unique and respectful retelling of the Jack the Ripper story, where history and mystery meet at the heart of the East End.
