Richards Tours

Select Option

Highlights

Leave the regular tourist trail and large group tours behind and get closer to the Jack the Ripper Murders with your own personal expert guide who will take you direct to the locations and explain the history of the notorious Autumn of Terror 1888.

No herding from one place to the next, with commentary you can't hear, this is a personalised tour, and you will be met direct from your hotel or agreed landmark. After visiting all the main locations we will finish in a traditional Victorian Pub connected to the case, where we can enjoy a drink and discuss the possible suspects!

This tour has two options - One for people seeking a general overview of the crimes and locations (3 Hours) and one for those wanting to visit all the locations and get deeper into the history (4 Hours and involves more walking)

These day time tours mean you will see more, avoiding the large night tours that crowd out locations.

About This Deal

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Whitechapel, Whitechapel, London, England

You will be met at Aldgate East Station and proceed on foot for a walking tour around the heart of Whitechapel.

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: 1 hour

Stop At: Fournier Street, London E1 6QE England

Once home of the Huguenot Silkweavers that fled persecution in France, this area became full of Doss Houses by 1888.

One of the most famous Pubs in the area is The Ten Bells. All of Jack the Rippers victims were known to frequent the Pub. The interior is largely the same as it was back then.

The youngest of Jack the Rippers victims Mary Kelly is particularly linked with the pub, as her lodgings were just across the street.


Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Mitre Street, Mitre St, 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

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
