Tour Itinerary

  •  Highlights all of the Jack the Ripper sites in East London. Visit the murder sites among the maze of cobblestone alleyways that helped Jack evade detection and capture.  See the White Hart pub,  a true Jack the Ripper landmark where one of the major suspects actually worked.
  • We will leave the cab at intervals for an up-close look at East London that will transport you back to that long-ago era of gas-lit shadows. Stand on the streets where the murders occurred and hear more hair-raising tales from our Specialist Trained Ripperologist.

The Ten Bells Pub

  •  Stop at the Ten Bells Pub for a nibble and tipple,  where our Specialist Trained Ripperologist will continue the eery story of how Jack lured the working girls of this pub to their fate. The Ten Bells is indelibly linked with the Jack the Ripper Story and still looks much like it did in 1888.

Wheelchair Accessible

All our taxis are wheelchair accessible. Slight modifications can be made to the tour,  if necessary,  for easier wheelchair access. Our drivers are always pleased to help.

Please phone us for specific information if you are travelling with an electric wheelchair.

Ripperology

The Ten Bells PubThe term “ripperology”  was coined to describe the study and analysis of the Ripper cases. Our guides have studied “ripperology” to become experts in the Ripper legend.

Because the murders were never solved,  the legends surrounding them became a combination of genuine historical research, folklore,  and pseudohistory. There are over one hundred theories about the Ripper’s identity,  and the murders have inspired multiple works of fiction.
