Overview
Take a ghostly tour of London’s East End and walk through streets that were patrolled by grim reapers, vile villains, and terrible tyrants. Travel back to the 15th-Century, and retrace the steps of notorious murders, including victims of Jack the Ripper.
What to Expect
This 2.5-hour walking tour of London’s shadowy streets takes you back in time, starting with the 1400s, long before an official police force patrolled the dark alleys in the city’s infamous East End. London was a city where tyrants ruled, and the weak were swallowed by death’s gaping maw.

The walk through the city’s gloom takes you through the sites of gruesome executions and crushing poverty, of overcrowding, disease, and depraved criminality. Retrace the bloody trail of the notorious Jack the Ripper's murders, get a taste for a new breed of soul harvester born of the Victorian age, and see the world’s first psychiatric hospital, plague pits, the Bloody Tower, and Traitor’s Gate.

You will go to several notoriously haunted areas of the East End and discover how traitors and criminals were punished, why the Ripper was never caught, and what life was really like for people living in the East End. In a city so full of light and beauty, this walk will show you the darkness waiting around every corner.
