Join us in this unique Jack the Ripper Tour that takes you back to the Victorian London.
We will explore the poorest and most dangerous alleyways that in the 19th century resulted in being the crime scenes of the gruesome murders of innocent women, committed by this still unidentified serial killer.
The walking tour starts in Tower Hill area and continues in Whitechapel that during that era was sadly known as the “Doors to Hell”. The darkness of a late evening helps to dive into this gloomy atmosphere that, together with the excellent acting skills of our guides, will make you feel totally engaged and absorbed.
In this guided tour you will hear about all the victims, suspects and conspiracy theories that will help you unravel the mystery behind Jack the Ripper’s murders.
Who was he? Some reckon he was a doctor, others a butcher, but what do you believe? Be a detective for a day and use our clues to build your own theory!

My friend and I went on the Jack the Ripper tour on a whim and we were SO happy that we did! During the two hour walking tour led by Victor, we learned so much about the history and theories of Jack the Ripper as well as the history of the Whitechapel area during the 1880’s. One of the things said by Victor (which I thought was incredibly classy) was that he likes to focus on the five victims’ stories more so than just glorify the killer; news outlets should take note!Donee C. 3/25/2018
- I went on two walking tours - Westminster and Jack The Ripper - both with Rob and both absolutely fantastic! Rob is very engaging and passionate about his job, so in every tour you can learn a lot of interesting stories and details about London. Would definitely recommend it and I will surely go on other tours with them: thank you, Wonders of London!Petra C. 2/11/2018
Went on Jack the Ripper tour last night. It was very good and the guide Rob was excellent at keeping everyone engaged with his knowledge. Also liked the idea of paying what you want at the end. Will definitely do another tour!Natasha F. 2/03/2018

My first time to join the free tour with the Wonders of London. I chose the tour of Jack the Ripper. The content was quite attractive and the whole tour was nice and smooth. I will recommend my friends to join more tours together.Chih-yun L. 3/29/2018
Free Jack the Ripper walking tour. Rob was our guide and did a great job. I've been interested in the Ripper case since I was a kid, and know London reasonably well, but it was great to put the two together. Our two teenagers didn't complain at all, so Rob must have been entertaining! Well worth it, affordable thing to do that's a bit different in the summer hols!Sarah G. 8/04/2018
Great Jack the Ripper tour! We did the Jack the Ripper tour on a Friday in September 18 with Victor as our guide. We thoroughly enjoyed it! Victor is very easy to listen to and really knows his stuff - he spoke respectfully about the victims which really brought the information to life. Having never done a city 'walk' before we didnt know what to expect and researched lots of companies offering more or less the same thing. We initially chose a 'free' walk in case we didnt enjoy it but as we walked and encountered other groups, you are NOT getting anything less from... read more Wonders of London - a very professional tour - thank you, we would use you again. (Please do tip the guides accordingly!) read lessLeaLeaDExeter 9/22/2018
