Stop At: Saint Bartholomew's Hospital Museum, Giltspur Street West Smithfield, London EC1A 7BE England

The oldest hospital in London founded in 1123. This was the place Sherlock and Watson met for the first time. The next day they took up lodgings at 221b Baker Street.

In the modern BBC show 'Sherlock' Watson watches on in horror as Sherlock plunges to his "death" after a rooftop conversation with Moriarty.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: North Gower Street, N Gower St, London NW1, UK

221b Baker Street as featured in the BBC show starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes.

The real life Cafe called Speedy's that features in the show is usually open Mon-Friday, so perhaps you can grab a coffee just like Sherlock does here in the show!

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Sherlock Holmes Museum, 221B Baker Street, London NW1 6XE England

The traditional 221b Baker Street. Home of Sherlock and Watson in the stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Here we can stop and have a look inside the Sherlock store, or pose for a photo outside this world famous address.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Whitechapel, Whitechapel, London, England

After a short journey on the London Underground you will arrive in the East End of London for walking tour around the heart of Whitechapel, to discover the world of Jack the Ripper.

Your expert guide will share the history of the "East End" of London, and how this once very deprived area is now going through huge regeneration.

The tour of this area will cover key locations relating to the Jack The Ripper Murders, and will take you through a detailed account of the case and those involved.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: 65 Brushfield Street Spitalfields, London E1 6AA England

Now a very trendy and creative area, Spitalfields in 1888 was a very different place. Even the Police feared going in after dark, and during the Autumn of 1888 Jack the Ripper chose this area as one of his main stalking grounds.

You will visit surviving buildings, murder sites and hear the witness testimonies from time.

Perhaps these details will help you form your own opinion on the worlds most famous unsolved crime?

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Goulston Street, Goulston St, London, UK

Jack the Ripper only left a small amount of physical clues behind. The most famous, and the most debated is the "Goulston Street Graffito"

A piece of bloodstained apron from Catherine Eddowes was found in a doorway on Goulston Street. Above it scrawled in Chalk on the wall was perhaps some of Jack the Rippers handwriting. Lets discuss the facts and you decide!

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Mitre Passage, London EC3A, UK

Just off Mitre Street is Mitre Square.
It was in this pitch black, cobbled square that Jack the Ripper managed to savagely kill and mutilate Catherine Eddowes. How he managed that in the darkness in less than 15 minutes still causes huge amounts of debate among Ripperologists.

Duration: 15 minutes
