With this incentive, could you be the one to solve one of the world's most unsolvable cases and unmask the ‘real’ Jack the Ripper?
Walking Back Through Time
Evening tours begin at a designated meeting point in Whitechapel, east London. You’ll receive an introduction to Jack the Ripper, the serial killer who terrorized the East End in the late 19th century, from your guide as you follow in the footsteps of ‘Jack’ and his victims. Walking the very route that Jack the Ripper would have taken, you’ll be transported back to a time of gaslight and fog, a time of poverty, disease and silent footsteps in the shadows as the Ripper hunted his victims.
Visit the murder scenes of Jack the Ripper victims, many of whom were young women, and marvel at projections that depict Victorian London. Learn about Jack the Ripper suspects and visit traditional East End pubs likely to have been frequented by the serial killer. The tour ends in time for a few drinks in the Victorian pub which once served the victims- and perhaps even Jack himself- if that takes your fancy (or you need something to steady your nerves!)
