  Hello Jack, how are you sweetheart ?

From Sourbugger's London page :

Jack the Ripper tours may have been considered a 'Off the beaten path' thing some years back, but now they are big business.

A tour can easily number a hundred people, and even in late March last year (2004) we must have seen about a dozen other groups out besides ours.

A standard tour will last just over 2 hours and will visit the various murder and clue sites.

They tend to begin around 6-8PM and leave from Tower Hill Tube Station.

We went with "Ripping Yarns" tours, who I would highly recommend. They are staffed by current or retired Beefeaters from the tower of London. The "London Walks" company can also be highly recommended as they operate a wide range of well researched and presented tours.

Due to quite graphic descriptions of victims bodies, you may not wish to take smaller children with you - but teenagers will love it !

Address: usually from Tower Hill tube

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
