The shocking story of Jack the Ripper is one that has endured the test of time. It captured the imagination of the population like no other tale of its kind, a fact exemplified by the continuing popularity of our Jack the Ripper tours.
The horrifying murders of the Canonical Five women, the gruesome state that the Ripper’s victims were found in, and the terror that overcame the residents of Whitechapel and the East End at the time have all contributed to making sure that the mystery of Jack the Ripper still remains very much ingrained in the public psyche.
The police, detectives and amateur sleuths of the time in 1888 had to make do with quite basic and rudimentary methods to try to catch the killer. Working largely from eyewitness reports and sketches, they painted a very different view of the Ripper’s territory to that which visitors to London will see today, 128 years later.
However, modern advances in technology and our understanding of the Ripper’s movements have meant that we can now update the classic story of Jack the Ripper by bringing him into the 21st century for the first time.
Ripper-Vision is a new and interactive approach to our famous Jack the Ripper tours. It brings the story to life for visitors and Jack the Ripper school tours alike, giving an unforgettable insight into the case in a way that has never been seen before.
