This is despite its title a family fun tour taking a light hearted look at Jack the Ripper and Sinister London
London’s reputation as the world’s most haunted city makes this tour a MUST! Leaving your hotel we travel through the city, Your guide will tell you stories that transport you back in time to a London of numerous hangings. We see the most haunted house in London; look for the Ghost of Charles Dickens; hear ghostly screams that never end; meet “Scratching Fanny”; stand inside a haunted prison cell; hear stories of witch trials and see the sites where they burnt at the stake; meet the Lady in Black, the Headless Lady, and… Jack the Ripper.
During 1888 terror struck the East End of London, and we retrace the footsteps of the most famous serial killer of all time. The person who committed these brutal murders was nicknamed ‘Jack the Ripper’. All the women murdered were prostitutes, and all except for one were horribly mutilated.
The first murder, Mary Ann Nicholls, 31st August. Annie Chapman 8th September. Elizabeth Stride and Catherine Eddowes 30th September and Mary Jane Kelly on 9th November. These are referred to as the ‘canonical five’ Ripper murders, although Martha Tabram, murder on 6th August 1888, is considered by some ‘ripperologists’ to be the first victim. During this tour we will try and solve the mystery that has baffled people for over 120 years. Who was he ? To this day the case remains unsolved, but will it be on your tour that we discover the truth?
After Jack the Ripper you may need a drink, so we head back to central London, hearing stories of the Phantom Bus, the Spook of Clarence House, the Ghost of Buckingham Palace, hear about the Murdered Actor, visit a Haunted Loo, and try and find a Severed Head!
After all this we reckon you definitely will need a drink so we can finish off the tour dropping you outside a typical English Pub
