The Jack The Ripper Walking Tour in London

143 reviews
This is the Original Aldgate East Jack the Ripper tour that has been operating nightly since 1982. Our start point means that, within seconds of setting out, you are exploring the cobbled alleys and atmospheric old streets that have changed little since Jack the Ripper prowled their shadows. Our guides, Richard Jones, John Bennett, Philip Hutchinson, Angie Norman, Lindsay Siviter and Mark Ubsdell are experts on the case and have between them written more than ten acclaimed books on the Jack The Ripper mystery. They are able to present you with a detailed account of the crimes that shook the world in 1888. However, they present those facts in a dramatic and entertaining fashion that is both entertaining and inspiring, and which helps bring the history of the crimes to vivid life. From the start, it is as though you are a part of the Victorian police investigation, as you sift the evidence, examine the facts, and debate the crimes and arrive at your own conclusions.

ENO production of the old favourite Cossi was truly fantastic!! Opera ; the highest form of art combining acting, singing, dancing, comedy and everything else! This particular production was superb! Quite a different take on the subject . Fabulous!

We had heard that the Hackney Empire was a lovely example of an old style theatre and jumped at the chance to see a show when we visited the area recently. Pleasantly surprised that, for a theatre of this age, the leg room was better than most. Very enjoyable.

Big theatre but very old and cramped. There is only 1 exit that we could see, for a lot of people. One musn't be in a hurry to get out, and we can't imagine what would happen in case of a fire. The seats are small and close to each other. At the end of our show the audience stomped their feet, we got worried the theatre would crumble!

We loved the over the top interior of the theatre, and a great performance of Dick Whittington, via the Windrush generation, great singing and imaginative sets.
