Walking the Streets Frequented by the Ripper
The tour takes you to the East End, specifically Whitechapel, where most of the Ripper’s crimes were committed. Those who take this tour essentially walk the same streets that were once frequented by the Ripper. There have been a few modifications over the years, but most of it is still there, untouched by the modern world. Whitechapel has managed to retain most of its late 19th-century look, even to this day. Walking these streets is not an experience for the faint of heart.
Lead the Investigation
Tourists will be given a detailed account of how the investigation progressed, and some frequently asked questions will be answered. Were there any leads? Did the Ripper act alone? How much evidence was collected? What about the suspects?
These are all valid questions, which the tour guide will answer on the way as they discuss the victims and suspects thought to be involved in the murders. During the tour, with the help of the experts, you will feel like you are leading your own investigation.
