A self-guided Jack the Ripper Walk
The Whitechapel murders in the “autumn of terror” 1888 have always exacted a fascination on people. A walk through the streets in which these events occurred allows us to get a glimpse into a bygone era that still feels very present today and is the best starting point to travel in any direction in London’s time and space. This walk will lead you through the area of the Ripper and his victims. Deep into the heart of darkness, into the abyss and along the “Ripper” streets…
This self-guided walk combines a downloadable guide book including photographs and maps and an audio guide for you to enjoy while walking the streets.
The audio guide will be available as one complete file as well as single tracks that each cover a section of the walk.
