Follow in the footsteps of Jack the Ripper... if you dare! (Don't worry... he's been dead for a long time now, so you should be safe.)

The story of the Whitechapel murders is one of London's most notorious unsolved crime cases. It is also one of the most bloodthirsty tales that you will ever hear.

Imagine the scene... it's the early hours of the morning in 1888, and a man walks down a dark, foggy lane in the East End where he sees a shapeless bundle of rags lying on the ground, and goes over to investigate. What he finds lying there is a bloodied and mutilated corpse, and his gruesome discovery begins one of the most famous man-hunts in criminal history.

The tour will take you around many of the locations associated with the case, and tell you the stories behind the victims and suspects.

Can you work out the true identity Jack the Ripper?

Craig has been on this tour himself... and lived to tell the tale (although he did have to go into therapy for six months afterwards). He did thoroughly enjoy it, though, and recommends giving it a go. It's probably not suitable for young kids though, as the explanations are extremely graphic -- he even shows you a couple of photos of the actual corpses. Have a read of his review of the Jack the Ripper tour before you go.
