Where does the Jack the Ripper tour start?

  • The Jack the Ripper tour starts outside the front doors of the Whitechapel Art Gallery, which is located just outside exit 3 of Aldgate East Station.

Where does the Jack the Ripper tour go?

  • You will follow a Jack the Ripper walking tour map, which leads you back in time to each of the murder scenes. You'll see the pubs where the victims and Jack the Ripper himself may have enjoyed a drink and walk the streets the killer would have walked down – some still boasting the original cobblestones where these heinous crimes took place. You will also visit the street where Jack the Ripper left a vital piece of evidence, and finally, you will round off the tour with a discussion about who the elusive killer could have been around the back of Spitalfields market and the Ten Bells pub.

Is the tour scary? 

  • While the content of the Jack the Ripper story isn’t for the faint-hearted, the walking tours won’t include jumpscares or fake atmospheric elements. Instead, the city provides all the chilling atmosphere you will need. This makes the tours particularly popular on cold, dark, and occasionally foggy autumn/winter evenings in London, much like the nights on which the fateful murders took place.

Are there any toilet stops on the tour?

  • During the walking tour, you will not be passing any public toilets. 

Are there any age restrictions?

  • While anyone over the age of 10 can visit the tour, you must keep in mind that the subject matter of the tour is very dark and disturbing. People of any age may find the content disturbing, but due to the graphic nature of the tour, you should definitely apply parental discretion to deciding on whether your child should take the tour or not. 

Is the tour wheelchair-friendly?

  • The tour itself is mostly wheelchair-friendly, and the route has been planned out to ensure that there are ramps at most of the points where roads are crossed.
  • Aldgate East Underground Station, where the tour begins, does not have lifts or wheelchair access, but there is a bus stop across the road and the busses do have wheelchair access.
  • It should be pointed out that the first thoroughfare on the tour, Gunthorpe Street, is a cobblestoned street and so it can be a little bumpy for wheelchair users. But it is passable.

Is the tour suitable for hearing-impaired people?

  • Although the tour doesn't provide resources to maintain permanent interpreters, Ripper Vision are happy for you to bring your own with you, and their guides will work with them to ensure you have an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
  • There is, however, a set of visual display cards, with the tour stops and descriptions printed onto them along with the photographs.

Is the tour suitable for visually-impaired people?

  • By its very nature the Jack the Ripper Tour explores the older and darker alleyways of the East End, which might prove difficult for those with conditions such as RP. As far as the walk description goes, the tour is very much a story telling experience, so the narrative will conjure up strong mental images of what the area was like at the time of the murders and will describe in detail the events of the Jack the Ripper case. So in many ways it is an ideal activity for the visually impaired.
