Discover the darker side of London as you learn about the terrors, mysteries, and shocks that rippled through the city during the time of Jack the Ripper. Experience legends and ghostly myths as well as gruesome true-life stories of public hangings and torture from times gone by as you explore by bus and on foot.

Hop aboard a vintage open-top bus to begin your journey through the darkened streets of London. Pass by ominous Tower Hill, where executioners once worked before bloodthirsty crowds. See the Old Bailey, the site of numerous public hangings, and the Wallace Plaque, where William Wallace was tortured. Drive past the site of Mrs. Lovett's pie shop and the barbershop behind the urban legend of the demon barber Sweeney Todd.

Leave the bus behind and set off behind your guide on foot, traveling down cobbled lanes to reach the deserted Smithfield Market. As you roam, listen for the scratching sounds of Fanny Lynes—the Cock Lane ghost—and hear about the exploits of London's most infamous body snatchers. As you move into the East End—a hotbed of crime in the 19th century—follow the paths trodden by Jack the Ripper himself, who stalked and murdered 5 victims in his mysterious 1888 reign of terror. Walk in his footsteps, inspecting the murder sites and deciphering the evidence.

Finally, gather in the warmth of The Sherlock Holmes pub for a nightcap. Check out a wide collection of the investigator's memorabilia, and consider staying on for a drink or a bite to eat.

There are no real sites to see

Everything has been built over. You are getting a tour of modern East London....at night. It was a little bit of a shady part of town. The tour guide was knowledgeable and we got to see a part of town that we wouldn't have gotten to see. But the content was not what it was advertised to be. It was Jack the Ripper. No Sherlock and only debunking the fiction of the Demon Barber. We signed up for those fictional items but there was no attention given to either.
