What is Ripper-Vision?
Ripper-Vision is your look into the past. Our tours make full use of state-of-the-art projectors that bring the London of 1888 into the present day, showing what the streets of the capital used to look like through 5ft images on the streets of Whitechapel. Not only that, but our tour guides will display other relevant media to complement the overall experience.
Is There Restricted View on our Ripper-Vision Tours?
