This private walking tour will transport you back to the dark and chilling world of the Whitechapel Murders in East London. We will follow in the footsteps of the notorious and never identified Jack The Ripper.
During the autumn of 1888, Jack The Ripper murdered, at least, five women with several other horrendous killings before and afterwards that may or may not have been carried out at the hands of the man voted The Worst Britain of All Time.
Whitechapel has changed almost out of all recognition since the days when one man by luck, deviousness and opportunity wrought terror in the middle of the biggest city in the world and yet escaped time after time.
Meeting you at your hotel or convenient tube station, we will travel to Aldgate. Our private group or even brave individual!! will retread the cobblestones of the East End of London. See the pubs and churches that the unfortunate victims of Jack frequented. Walk along the streets and lonely alleyways that they had to pass through at night whilst knowing that a monster was lurking around… somewhere.
Finally, we will visit the very spots where murder was done, time after time.
This tour is especially for those of you who want to do something different in London and don’t fancy walking Whitechapel at night or in a large group.
We’ll learn what living in the East End was like in those days. The awful conditions that the residents, women and men alike had to endure. Discover the lucky breaks that Jack had and the misconceptions that the Police had of what the world’s first and still most feared serial killer would be like. Some of the buildings have changed; the streets may have new names, but the horror remains!
Afterwards, and only if you want to, we can visit part of the medical museum and see some of the Victorian instruments used on his unfortunate victims.
I’ve studied Jack The Ripper for over 30 years and lived in London for even longer. As a historian and not just a guide, this tour could raise the hair on the back of your necks or not, depending on how you like your walks!

I went on a Jack the Ripper tour with Stephen on Halloween. I learnt so much more than I expected; about the murders and the environment the poor women were living in. Communication from Stephen from first enquiry to the day of the tour was faultless. He was on time and easy to find at our meeting place. I thoroughly enjoyed Stephens company and would recommend him for a few hours or a week! Thanks Stephen.
