Come October, everywhere you look turns lovely hues of yellow and orange. With scattered fallen leaves and a nip in the air, it’s time to celebrate autumn. However, that’s not all that October brings – it’s time for all the spooky fun of Halloween!
With ghostly tales, carved pumpkins, clever costumes and dark nights, Halloween brings a unique combination of fright and excitement.
Apart from trick or treating and themed parties, what else can you do to celebrate the occasion?
If you’re tired of doing the same thing every year, then why not head out on a mysterious Jack the Ripper walk and experience a hauntingly fresh activity this Halloween. Our Jack the Ripper tour guides you through the eerie streets of East London after dark, the very streets that the Ripper himself frequented all those years ago. It gives you a chance to relive the area’s dark history on the spookiest day of the year.
The infamous serial killer who once roamed the streets of East London, Jack the Ripper was responsible for the murders of five women during 1888. However, the identity of the murderer remains a mystery. Despite large-scale investigations sprawling over several decades, the Ripper still remains masked.
Our Jack the Ripper walk, running all seven days a week, is the perfect way to celebrate Halloween. Taking place in the heart of the historical East End of London, this is an area rich in history and holding countless notorious secrets.
The tour lasts an hour and 45 minutes and takes you through the real-life murder locations, allowing you to relive the horror Jack’s victims must have experienced.
Our Jack the Ripper walk is led by expert Ripperologists and promises to give you an unforgettable experience. In addition, the exclusive Ripper vision will give you a unique insight, allowing you to experience Whitechapel through the eyes of the killer. With clues still hiding in the streets, you never know what you might discover on your walk.
