The days are drawing shorter, darker and colder. Leaves are falling to the ground; clouds are gathering in the sky and the wind chill factor is through the roof. Autumn has arrived, and that means the most horrifying time of year is right around the corner; Halloween.
October 31st, Halloween or even All Hallows Eve comes but once a year, and is a time for all to enjoy; dressing up, trick or treating, carving pumpkins and embracing the living dead, getting up close and personal with ghosts, ghouls, and horrors, no less.
If Jack the Ripper still stalked the streets of London, Halloween is the one night of the year where he could walk unnoticed, going about his ghastly business. Luckily, 128 years have passed since we heard news of a Ripper killing, but you can still re-live his autumn of terror with us here at Jack the Ripper tours.
So, before you settle down and draw the curtains for a night in with your favourite horror films, why not indulge in a scare fest like no other? Spine-tingling facts, goosebump-inducing accounts of the victims, analysing the suspects, and the murders that shocked a city, a nation, the World.
Don’t be alarmed, but what you’re about to hear is a true story.
Our walking tour covers the stomping ground of the world’s first serial killer, Jack the Ripper. The notorious murderer is believed to have lived locally in the East End of London, giving him insider knowledge of the alleys and snickets where his macabre acts took place.
Our expert tour guide Ripperologists know the case inside and out and hold a wealth of Jack the Ripper knowledge should you have any questions during your Halloween tour; visiting the grisly murder spots and bringing 19th century London to life.
When it comes to the Ripper horrors, we all have questions that we want answering. How did he choose his victims? Where did he come from? Where did he disappear to? What were his motives? Why were the police unable to catch him? Who was Jack the Ripper??
This year, forget the parties and forget the celebrations; have a truly horrifying fright night like no other. Our Jack the Ripper Halloween tour feels even creepier, and even more chilling, with the ghosts and ghouls out to play.
Bring the autumn of terror to life and experience what it felt like to live in the East End of London back in 1888.
