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 in London lore.

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 original locations associated with the case, including some of the murder scenes, and will tell you the stories behind the victims' lives.

But what about the suspects? Nobody knows for sure who did it, so the guide will go through all the most likely suspects and let you ponder on it. 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 thoroughly enjoyed it, and recommends giving it a try. Even if you're not into the history, you'll still get to see some interesting parts of the East End. But be warned: it's not suitable for young kids, though, because the guide's explanations are extremely graphic -- he even shows you a couple of photos of the actual corpses. He also goes into detail about the victim's 'jobs' (which you probably don't want a kid to hear). Have a read of Craig's review of the Jack the Ripper tour before you go, so you know what you're letting yourself in for. And feel free to ask him some questions.
