Although we are living in uncertain times amid the COVID-19 pandemic and adhering to restrictions, that doesn’t mean that you cannot join for a Jack the Ripper tour. While we continue to welcome guests along for a socially-distanced walking tour through Whitechapel, for those that either can not join us in London or would rather stay safe at home we have introduced our new virtual Jack the Ripper tour experience.
Our world-famous Ripper-Vision is a feature that all keen historians and true crime enthusiasts should have the opportunity to experience, which is why we are bringing our walking tour online. From the comfort of your home, an expert Ripperologist will take you through the streets of Whitechapel, visiting each of the murder locations and other places of interest in the Jack the Ripper murders.
How Does a Virtual Jack the Ripper Tour Work?
Once you pay for a ticket in our virtual Jack the Ripper tour, you will be provided with a password to the virtual tour – which you will have access to for 24 hours. You can book your spot online in exactly the same way as you would for a normal walking tour via our booking page and, once you have completed your purchase, you will have a front-row seat to the original Jack the Ripper walking tour.
Can I Stream the Tour Onto my Television?
Yes! Anyone who has purchased a pass for our virtual Jack the Ripper tour will be able to cast the stream onto their television via Google Chromecast. This means that you and your family and friends will not have to crowd around your computer or mobile screen, instead, being able to sit back comfortably on the sofa with your snacks of choice in front of the television.
How Does the Virtual Tour Differ from Being There?
While our virtual tour offers the same level of detail to all our guests who attend our walking tour in person, undoubtedly the experience will slightly differ. Although you will not be able to ask direct questions to your tour guide as you would if you were part of a group walking through London’s East End, this is more than made up by the presentation and knowledge delivered by our expert Ripperologists.
Our tour guides are real experts who have specialised in the Jack the Ripper murders for years, they do not read from a pre-written script simply because they do not have to. From historians who have authored best-selling books to Ripperologists that have been at the forefront of bringing new ideas and theories to the table, you will find no one better to lead you through the gruesome events that unfolded in 1888.
How Much Will the Virtual Jack the Ripper Tour Cost?
Tickets for the virtual tour will cost just £5, which will give you 24-hour access to the video which you can watch with all the members in your household and social bubble.
What Will You Learn by Taking the Virtual Tour?
Our expert guide will take you on the same journey that Jack the Ripper himself walked in Victorian London. You will visit each of the murder locations of the Canonical Five, introducing you to theories that you may or may not have heard before the tour and, of course, speculating as to who the killer was.
With numerous suspects linked to the murders, our guide will fill you in on who could have been the murderer and who is, most likely, in the clear. With names such as Aaron Kosminski, Prince Albert Victor and Francis Tumblety all considered to be leading suspects, you won’t want to miss what our Ripperologists have to say.
