Afternoon Jack the Ripper Tour with 'Ripper-Vision' in London
From US$ 17.27
Overview
Unlike other Jack the Ripper experiences, this tour comes with Ripper Vision: a hand-held projector that transports you back to Victorian London, when Jack the Ripper would have been prowling the streets. During the afternoon, when the streets of Whitechapel are less crowded and more atmospheric, you’ll explore east London on foot and learn about the still unidentified serial killer’s reign of terror, with accompanying videos and images to enhance your experience.
What to Expect
As you walk the very route the ripper would have taken, 'Ripper- Vision' will practically bring you 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.
The gruesome tale of Jack the ripper remains the greatest mystery in the history of crime. Your guide is a dedicated "Ripperologist" and enthusiast. This is the most up to date Jack the Ripper tour anywhere in London, the most exciting, the most shocking and a must for anyone who loves a good gruesome mystery. So join in and track down the most elusive criminal in history.
Itinerary
Itinerary:
Gunthorpe Street - Scene of murder Martha Tabram
The scene many experts claim to be the first Jack the Ripper murder. This cobbled stone lane way remains a great starting point in the tour, as you can instantly feel the sense of a bygone era, of gaslit streets, dark corners and quiet footsteps in the night, as the ripper lay in wait for his victims.

Frying Pan pub - The death of Mary Ann Nichols
One of the last sightings of victim Mary Ann Nichols before her mutilated body was discovered in Bucks Row on the night of 31st August, 1888. This building, and its surrounding area, provide a great insight into the social living conditions and the everyday fight for survival in London's East End.

Hanbury Street - Scene of the Annie Chapman murder
The body of Annie Chapman was discovered here in the early hours of 8th September 1888, her throat cut across, her body horribly mutilated. What clues did the killer leave?

The Ripper Letters
See the emergence of Jack the ripper in a series of penned letters, sent to the central news agency during the "Autumn of Terror" They were written in blood red ink and sent with half a human kidney.

The Death of Elizabeth Stride
Elizabeth Stride's, or Long Liz, body was found in Dutfield's yard off Berner street in the early hours of 30th September 1888. Her death was only the first in a night that would forever become known as the "double event".


Mitre Square - Scene of the Catherine Eddowes murder
The 30th September 1888 became known as the "double event" when the Ripper killed twice in one night. You'll visit the original cobble-stoned square, investigate the evidence and find out how the ripper evaded capture.

Goulston Street - Scene of perhaps the most vital clue in the ripper case
The night of the double murder left perhaps one of the most important clues in the entire case. What was it? Does it help solve the mystery?

Dorset Street - Scene of the Mary Kelly murder
The Ripper's final victim was found in her small room at 13 Millers Court on 9th Nov 1888 and was the most savagely mutilated victim of them all. You'll visit the murder sight and recreate the final moments of the ripper's reign of terror. Over a century later, the police photo is still very disturbing.

Who was Jack the Ripper?
Using modern criminal profiling, your guide will reveal the man police should of been looking for throughout the biggest man hunt in British history.

I think the tour lasted about one and half hours. The more questions asked the longer the guide would take. Jamie was happy to discuss theories and opinions. I would think the tour could last up to two hours.
