Directions from outside exit four of Aldgate East underground station
Go over the pedestrian crossing towards the KFC. To its left is a clothes shop called Albert’s. Once outside Albert’s you need to go into the covered passageway that runs between Number 88 (to the left of Albert’s as you face it) and the White Hart Pub. This is Gunthorpe Street.
The tour will be in this alley for around ten minutes. Please ensure that you join our tour the original Jack the Ripper Tour as another company has taken to sometimes standing in this alley and has on occasion deliberately misled our clients into joining them and then charging them at the end of the tour. So ask you guide if they have your name on their guest list, if they don’t then they are not the original Jack the Ripper Walk so please call us on 020 7193-5793.
After this we continue to the end of Gunthorpe Street and go right along Wentworth Street. We then turn left along Brick Lane and pause outside the Sheraz restaurant situated on the left at Brick Lane’s junction with Thrawl Street.
From there the Jack the Ripper Walk proceeds along Brick Lane and turns left into Fournier Street pausing a little way along. We then go right along Wilkes Street and keep ahead into Hanbury Street.
If you haven’t caught up with us by this time please phone us on 020 7193-5793.
Our emergency number is manned from 6pm to 8pm so please call us if you encounter any difficulties. If it goes to voice mail it means we are helping other clients so please either leave you number or wait a few moments and then call us back.
