Jack The Ripper Tour
Jack the Ripper tour is resource operated by Richard Jones of Discovery Tours and Events Ltd. The tour explores the East End of London and enables people to get to grips with a chapter in London's history when England's capital city walked in daily fear of an unknown miscreant who was terrorising the streets of the Spitalfields and Whitechapel.
Richard has always wanted to offer the best Jack the Ripper tours in London, and he has carefully built a team of handpicked guides to ensure that you are guided by experts when you take a walk with his company.
These guides are acknowledged experts on the Jack the Ripper case and two of them – Philip Hutchinson and John Bennett – have, like Richard, published books on the case. It is this dedication to ensuring that we enlist the services of expert guides that helps maintain the quality of our tours.
No other company offers you such an array of published authors and that is why ours is widely regarded as being the premier Jack the Ripper Tour in London.
- We’re the original Aldgate East Jack the Ripper Tour and have been introducing people to this fascinating story since 1982.
- We’re recommended by the Bible of ripper studies The Complete Jack the Ripper A to Z. To be mentioned in its pages means that you are internationally recognised as a World authority on the case.
