An expert guide will lead you to the favourite hunting spots of the man who became known as Jack the Ripper!
The story began in 1888 in the early house of 31st August. Walking down a dark lane in the Whitechapel area, a man discovered a bundle lying on the ground near a set of gates. With his curiosity getting the better of him, he moved closer to the bundle only to wish he hadn’t, for under this shapeless bundle was the body of an East End prostitute, gruesomely murdered. And such began a man hunt for one of the most dangerous and notorious murderers in history. Ripperologists, as they are now known, and amateur sleuths are still to this day trying to uncover the identity of Jack the Ripper.
So come along on the trail of Jack the Ripper as we explore this great mystery, savage and blood thirsty as it is. Not for the faint-hearted!
