As the evening draws in and the chill in the air intensifies, so too does Richard Jones’s storytelling, prompting me to start, disconcertedly, looking over my shoulder or feel the hairs on my neck slightly stand on end.

I was a little sceptical about how spooky a busy London borough could really be but I was pleasantly (or should I say unpleasantly) surprised to find our guide Jenny Phillips confidently guiding us into alleyways and streets lined by houses dating back to 1888, complete with authentic street lamps and, consequently, bags of atmosphere.
I left Aldgate with an enhanced understanding of the Whitechapel murders, but also feeling satisfactorily creeped out. There weren’t any shock tactics used but Jenny knew her stuff… Put it this way – on the way home I found myself avoiding those dark and dingy doorways… just in case.
