Jack the Ripper Tour

Set out on a coach drive directly to the dark side of London. Along the way you will see the Old Bailey - the site of numerous public hangings, the Royal London Hospital where the Elephant Man lived, the Wallace Plaque where Braveheart was tortured and hear tales of gangland warfare, butcherous barbers and great train robbers.

As the shadows lengthen, you arrive in London's East End, a hotbed of crime and vice in the 19th century. During the autumn of 1888, terror struck when Jack the Ripper came out of the fog and dimly lit alleys just long enough to stalk and butcher his five victims. At this point we leave the coach and walk his death trail inspecting the murder sites, deciphering the evidence and discussing his suspects. To this day the case remains unsolved. Come and investigate the case for yourself - who was Jack the Ripper?

The tour ends at the Sherlock Holmes Pub, which is situated close to Trafalgar Square.

Please Note: This tour departs from the Victoria Coach (Bus) Station, a 5-minute walk from the Victoria Train Station. This tour is intended for your pre/post cruise experience. Please be advised that the tour departure location is an approximately 2-hour drive from the port. You must find your own way to the tour departure location (at your own expense). There are many options, such as taking a taxi, train, bus, or any combination of the above.

Tour Great, Getting to it, not so much.

The tour itself was terrific. The directions to meet for the tour were not. We booked the tour on the internet and were given a time and a meeting place. Both were wrong. Only after waiting at the wrong location for 30 minutes and calling the tour office were we given the correct time and location. The time wasted here could have been better used to enjoy our trip to London.
