    Itinerary
    Itinerary:
    Gunthorpe Street - Scene of murder Martha Tabram
    The scene many experts claim to be the first Jack the Ripper murder. This cobbled stone lane way remains a great starting point in the tour, as you can instantly feel the sense of a bygone era, of gaslit streets, dark corners and quiet footsteps in the night, as the ripper lay in wait for his victims.

    Frying Pan pub - The death of Mary Ann Nichols
    One of the last sightings of victim Mary Ann Nichols before her mutilated body was discovered in Bucks Row on the night of 31st August, 1888. This building, and its surrounding area, provide a great insight into the social living conditions and the everyday fight for survival in London's East End.

    Hanbury Street - Scene of the Annie Chapman murder
    The body of Annie Chapman was discovered here in the early hours of 8th September 1888, her throat cut across, her body horribly mutilated. What clues did the killer leave?

    The Ripper Letters
    See the emergence of Jack the ripper in a series of penned letters, sent to the central news agency during the "Autumn of Terror" They were written in blood red ink and sent with half a human kidney.

    The Death of Elizabeth Stride
    Elizabeth Stride's, or Long Liz, body was found in Dutfield's yard off Berner street in the early hours of 30th September 1888. Her death was only the first in a night that would forever become known as the "double event".


    Mitre Square - Scene of the Catherine Eddowes murder
    The 30th September 1888 became known as the "double event" when the Ripper killed twice in one night. You'll visit the original cobble-stoned square, investigate the evidence and find out how the ripper evaded capture.

    Goulston Street - Scene of perhaps the most vital clue in the ripper case
    The night of the double murder left perhaps one of the most important clues in the entire case. What was it? Does it help solve the mystery?

    Dorset Street - Scene of the Mary Kelly murder
    The Ripper's final victim was found in her small room at 13 Millers Court on 9th Nov 1888 and was the most savagely mutilated victim of them all. You'll visit the murder sight and recreate the final moments of the ripper's reign of terror. Over a century later, the police photo is still very disturbing.

    Who was Jack the Ripper?
    Using modern criminal profiling, your guide will reveal the man police should of been looking for throughout the biggest man hunt in British history.

    We joined Johnny on Friday for his 4.30 tour of the Ripper murders. Obviously this story is extremely fascinating in itself. BUT the way Johnny makes the tour. Really enjoyed it and was such an amazing experience. Definitely recommend and will try another tour.

    This tour was amazing. The guide had 30 years of research under his belt and really was engaged. I suggest that everybody take this tour; it taught me so much about Jack the Ripper and the conspiracies surrounding him.

    Awesome tour with an entertaining guide! Johnny knew his stuff and did not shy away from the details while maintaining a respectful tone. It can be difficult to talk about such brutal violence and graphic subject matter in an appropriate way but he did it...More

    Hi, one or two photographs of the morgue pictures are shown. It will depend on how sensitive your child is. Otherwise it is a very interesting tour and manageable walk for a 12 year old.
