School Tours - An experience your students will never forget
Our Jack the Ripper school tours are perfect for students studying for A-Level or GCSE exams.
We are now voted the first choice for schools, universities and colleges when it comes to educating the young minds of tomorrow on one of historyâ€™s most notorious serial killers.
Teachers from all around Europe are now using our tour to promote the new curriculum, which focuses on helping students learn about the Victorian era, 19th century police investigation techniques, social awareness and an in-depth analysis of turn-of-the-century policing, compared to operations today.
The #1 for School and College Tours
Walk with best
Unlike most tours in London, our team consists of real historians, authors and experts on the case of Jack the Ripper and the Whitechapel murders, not to mention organising the official Jack the Ripper conference every year since 1996.
These are the premier conferences that bring in the worldâ€™s greatest experts for a weekend of discussions, debates and lectures. Names such as Donald Rumblelow, Martin Fido, Paul Beg and Keith Skinner, have all appeared at our events. This means we are the first to hear of any new evidence, findings, results and suspects that may crop up in the investigation.
This isnâ€™t all though, as our team have also advised many historical documentaries, authors and TV show and filmmakers, including the famous Ripper Street and London Calling. We have also appeared on Sky News, CBS, The History Channel, Secrets of Scotland Yard and much more. So, who better to teach your students about the ways of the Victorian era and the case of Jack the Ripper than the crime experts themselves?
The most up-to-date Jack the Ripper Tour in London
Streets ahead of the rest:
We use the latest technology to present the story of Victorian England and the Whitechapel murders. Our Ripper Vision is a school favourite and has been proven to keep all students entertained.
Most Jack the Ripper tours have been running for over 25 years, and hail a bygone time when there were very few facts, no information and relied solely on hearsay and rumour. Our Ripper Vision tour was the first and only tour of its kind to bring the case into the 21st century. We have swept away the fiction and Chinese whispers, in order to deliver the cold hard facts of the investigation.
Modern Criminal Profiling:
Using police reports, eyewitness testimony and psychological profiling taken straight from the FBI criminal investigations, we can, at last, present the definitive story of the Autumn of Terror. This allows us to shed light on not only who the killer may have been, but also where he most likely lived too.

â€œTHE MOST FASCINATING AND THOUGHT-PROVOKING TOUR IN LONDONâ€(ADAM WOOD, EDITOR OF RIPPEROLOGIST MAGAZINE)
One of the hardest tasks for any teacher is to keep students studying Jack the Ripper, either at GCSE or A-Level, hooked and ensure they are learning at the same time. Luckily, our team recognise this, and that is why we are the ONLY Jack the Ripper tour in London to use:
Expert guides with over 25 yearsâ€™ experience
Captivating story-telling that brings the tour to life
State-of-the-art crime scene photographs/visual aids
We also ensure research is easy to understand, for the benefit of your students. Guides that use hand-held projectors deliver an unparalleled tour and equally enjoyable experience for all involved.
The only tour to use modern criminal profiling
For the last 27 years, societyâ€™s understanding of the motives and patterns of serial killers has evolved on a massive scale. Today, this process is better known as â€œCriminal Profilingâ€, and is one of the main tools used by every police force in the world. We remain the ONLY Jack the Ripper tour company to follow and use this method, as well as geographic mapping techniques, created by leading experts, such as:
John E Douglas â€“ FBI (one of the first ever criminal profilers)
Roy Hazelwood â€“ FBI (the Ripper project 1988)
Laura Richard â€“ Scotland Yard (psychological study of violent offenders)
We compare Jack the Ripper to the modern day serial killer, as well as highlight the significant errors and go the extra mile in encouraging discussion with your students. We listen to their theories and answer any and all questions they may have. We love a good discussion, and weâ€™re sure your students will too!
Who was the real Jack the Ripper?
The million dollar question; who was Jack the Ripper? The secret identity of the Jack the Ripper has remained a mystery, tucked away in the shadows of Victorian England for more than 127 years. However, with modern criminal profiling and geographic mapping, we can finally narrow down the search. At the end of each tour, we will reveal:
The face of the man the police should have been looking for in 1888
The area he lived in, and the place the police should have been searching during the Autumn of Terror
The type of individual he would have been
Why the police were unable to catch him
