About
This is the Original Aldgate East Jack the Ripper tour that has been operating nightly since 1982. Our start point means that, within seconds of setting out, you are exploring the cobbled alleys and atmospheric old streets that have changed little since Jack the Ripper prowled their shadows. Our guides, Richard Jones, John Bennett, Angie Norman, Lindsay Siviter and Jeremy Vyse are experts on the case and have between them written more than ten acclaimed books on the Jack The Ripper mystery. They are able to present you with a detailed account of the crimes that shook the world in 1888. However, they present those facts in a dramatic and entertaining fashion that is both entertaining and inspiring, and which helps bring the history of the crimes to vivid life. From the start, it is as though you are a part of the Victorian police investigation, as you sift the evidence, examine the facts, and debate the crimes and arrive at your own conclusions.

Very good but large groups.
Nov. 2021 • Friends
Guide was very good. Very knowledgable and passionate about the subject matter, she gave good information and was able to paint a picture of how London would have been back in the late 1800's. Only downside was there were app 38 people in our group with 1 guide, I felt it was too many people for one group, at times it was hard to hear the guide as you couldn't get close enough. There was a second group from the same company following us round and they appeared to have a much smaller number.

Thank you for your comments and we are pleased that found your guide very good, and you comment that she was very knowledgeable and passionate about the case and East End history. We apologise that you felt the group was too large and at times you had issues hearing the guide. It does sometimes happen that if clients arrive late they will join the first group they see which is what may have happened on the night, as you mention our second group was much smaller. We will speak with our guides to ensure that they make an announcement at the first stop to ensure that everyone has checked in , to ensure that everyone is in their correct groups. We do also ask our guides to make regular announcements to check everyone can hear, if this didn't happen on your tour can you email me and let me know the date you took the tour and who your guide was and we will follow up. Thank you for your comments, it is important for us to know when the tour does not live up to our usual standards and hinders customer satisfaction.

gRIPPING tour with Angie
Nov. 2021
The tour with Angie was great and her storytelling was brilliant. She painted the picture of London in 1888 well, showing empathy for the victims whilst describing the monstrous attacks. I've been on similar tours in London and different cities in the UK and some can be a little cheesy, which I find off putting but this tour wasn't like that at all. I would definitely the tour for tourists and locals.

Its very important to us that the tour does not glorify the murders in any way and victims/participants in the case are treated respectfully - thus its great to hear that you felt the tour handled this well.

Jeremy was our tour guide and his enthusiasm & knowledge is what made this tour engaging and interesting. The tour from start to finish was just brilliant and I would highly recommend for anyone to give it a go. Lots of different theories were suggested to think about to help you make up your own mind as to what might have happened. Jeremy made sure that everyone kept up and ensured that everyone could hear what was said and pictures could be seen. Questions were asked of the group as to their thoughts on things. All together a brilliant time was had by all.

Jack The Ripper Tour : What an informative and chilling trip back in time to 1888!
Nov. 2021 • Friends
Firstly, a special mention and thank you has to go to tour guide Jeremy who was so professional, informative, friendly and fun. Superb job and I hope to see you again on this tour.

The Jack the Ripper murders of 1888 have always fascinated me so when the opportunity arose to tour Whitechapel with a professional guide I jumped at the chance and so glad that I did.

Without spoiling too many details of the walking tour, you'll be taken on a trip back in time hearing about the Ripper and his victims, visiting ACTUAL LOCATIONS of those murders so long ago, listening to the history of those times and seeing buildings still standing from the period.

It's worth every penny of the excellent price and as mentioned at the start, if you are fortunate enough to have Jeremy guide you through the murder and mystery, you're in for a real treat.

Don't hesitate to do this tour, I promise it will leave haunting memories of a time long since past centering around those still unsolved murders by Jack(?) The Ripper. 10/10.
