I found this advert for a tour of the London slums, to include Jack the Ripper Land in The Morning Post of Thursday, 12th June, 1902! I love the idea that clients were "assured freedom from interference or insult"!!

Our Story

The Jack the Ripper Tour that is led by published authors and experts on the case. Founded in 1982 by Blue Badge Guide and author Richard Jones, this is the original Aldgate East Jack the Ripper Walk that features genuine Victorian photographs that show the streets you are walking through as they were in 1888.

The tour is more than just a sightseeing tour, but rather it offers participants the opportunity to effectively became CSI’s in one of history’s greatest mysteries as they track the Whitechapel murderer through the very streets where the crimes occurred.

To enable you to fully get to grips with the facts and the theories, our guides are experts and top-notch researchers on the subject, who collectively have written more than ten books on the Jack the Ripper crimes and have been featured in virtually every documentary on the subject over the last twenty years.

However, the tour is presented in a dramatic and entertaining fashion - we like to call it informed entertainment - and all our guides are first-rate storytellers who are able to keep their audiences engaged, as they lay the facts and the history before you in a way that is not dull and boring.

In addition, it is our policy to encourage participants to be a part of the investigation; and, to that end, on our jack the Ripper walk you can feel free to discuss the case with your guide and fellow participants and to ask as many questions as you wish.

Of course, the all-important thing about a walk such as this is the route that it takes, and, with our tour, you will begin at the epicentre of the murder district and will go straight into the old streets that have changed little since the autumn of 1888 when Jack the Ripper prowled their shadows.

Within moments of setting out, you will have passed through an atmospheric old arch, and will be walking along a sinister, cobbled street, following in the footsteps of Whitechapel murders victim Martha Tabram, whom many believe was, in fact, the first victim of the killer who would later become known as Jack the Ripper.

Suddenly, the 21st century has fallen behind, and you will get the distinct feeling that, in just a few short steps, you have somehow been transported back to the Victorian East End.

From that point onwards, you will twist your way through a labyrinth of backstreets lined with sturdy 18th-century houses that formed the backcloth against which the Jack the Ripper saga unfolded.

From that point onwards, you will twist your way through a labyrinth of backstreets lined with sturdy 18th-century houses that formed the backcloth against which the Jack the Ripper saga unfolded.

Here, in this time-capsule of Victorian London, it's as though you are back there in the chilling autumn of terror, and any slight movement, any shadow cast by one of the street lamps will cause the group to huddle closer, ever wary of what might be lurking in the darker recesses of the surroundings.

Can there be a better backdrop against which to indulge your curiosity about history’s greatest and best-known whodunnit?

Your time capsule awaits.

I’ve really enjoyed Richard Jones videos of the murder sites (Then and Now). I haven’t been to the Nicholls or Stride sites and the videos are the best I’ve seen at showing the sites, as well as how they’ve changed.
I'm still working on my book, "The True story of Jack the Ripper or the Tragedy of one man"
Can't wait to start reading this!
Just got this bad boy in the other day and got it framed
