Jack The Ripper Coach and Walking Tour

This tour will take you back in time by your tour guide as he shares with you some chilling tales of murder, crime and executions. As you drive past parts of London your tour guide will identify the sordid history lurking behind some of the facade of buildings and landmarks.

Learn about the 19th century body snatchers who dug local cemeteries in the interest of Science. The most famous snatchers such as John Bishop and Thomas Williams were hanged at Newgate prison in front of thousands of boisterous Londoners.
Jack The Ripper
You will then approach London’s East End which was an area of crime and vice in the 19th century. During the autumn of 1888, terror struck when Jack the Ripper came out of the fog and dimly lit alleys just long enough to stalk and butcher his five victims. At this point we leave the safety of the bus and walk his death trail inspecting the murder sites, deciphering the evidence and discussing his suspects. To this day the case remains unsolved. Come and investigate the case for yourself – who was Jack the Ripper? Read more.
