Jack the Ripper Walking Tour:
Jack the Ripper Murders - It happened here in London in the year 1888.
In the early hours of 31st August 1888, a man walking to work down a dark lane in Whitechapel saw a shapeless bundle lying on the ground near some gates. Curious, he went over to investigate. His gruesome discovery of a murdered East End prostitute then started one of the most famous man hunts in the world. Ripperologists and amateur sleuths to this day are still trying to work out the identity of a man they called Jack the Ripper.
This fascinating Jack the Ripper walking tour will follow the trail left by Jack the Ripper, the serial killer who once reigned supreme in the area of Whitechapel. You will begin at Trader’s Gate, before continuing down Aldgate High Street to Mitre Square. Mitre Square is infamous as the place where Jack the Ripper claimed not one, but two victims. Moving on, you will arrive at Goulston Street, which is arguably where the most vital clue to potentially solving the case of Jack the Ripper may be found. Traverse Commerical Street before arriving at Hanbury Street, where the body of horrifically mutilated Anne Chapman was discovered.
The notorious Jack the Ripper’s Whitechapel murders are as controversial and unfathomable to many in the modern age as they were in the Victorian era. Jack the Ripper eluded identification in his age, and continues to do so.
