Jack the Ripper Tour
A pay-what-you-wish Jack the Ripper Tour.
The city is London. The year is 1888. In the destitute eastern part of the capital, immigrants, dock-workers, prostitutes and thieves live cheek-by-jowl in filthy, cramped conditions. The streets are paved with cobbled stones and through the thick, rolling London fog, only the faintest glimmer of gas-light can be glimpsed. A cat yowls in the distance and heavy footsteps are heard but their maker is unseen…Was that the glint of a knife you saw? There! Was that the flash of a black cape whipping around the corner? You had better be wary because there’s a murderer a-foot. He’s come from Hell, they say, and it’s no good keeping an eye out because once you see him, it’s already too late…
So come with us as we walk in the footsteps of one of the most legendary criminals of all time: Jack The Ripper. History will be brought to life and the dead resurrected as we take an evening adventure immersed in the crimes that shocked the world, and that still captivate us today. Exploring the alleyways, by-ways and side streets of the East End, Free Tours By Foot will take you through a true Victorian experience. Detailing the gruesome scenes and grisly deaths of the 5 known Ripper victims, we’ll examine all the facts and speculate on all the possibilities.
Join us on our pay-what-you-wish Jack the Ripper Tour as we delve into the underbelly of Victorian London and re-live the most famous unsolved crime in history. After all, there’s safety in numbers…
