One of London’s longest established Jack The Ripper Tours
Richard Jones – best-selling author of Uncovering Jack the Ripper’s London and Jack the Ripper:- The Casebook – began our Jack the Ripper Walking Tour through London’s East End in June 1982 and, with 30 years experience of introducing visitors and Londoners alike to the world’s most famous murder mystery, our reputation for offering original and quality tours is unrivalled.
One of the best Jack The Ripper Tours
Richard has always wanted to offer the best Jack the Ripper tours in London, and he has carefully built a team of handpicked guides to ensure that you are guided by experts when you take a walk with his company.
These guides are acknowledged experts on the Jack the Ripper case and two of them – Philip Hutchinson and John Bennett – have, like Richard, published books on the case. It is this dedication to ensuring that we enlist the services of expert guides that helps maintain the quality of our tours.
No other company offers you such an array of published authors and that is why ours is widely regarded as being the premier Jack the Ripper Tour in London.
But Don’t Just Take Our Word For It
The leading resource on the Jack the Ripper case The Complete Jack the Ripper A to Z – which has been hailed as the “Bible of Ripper studies” – actually singles out Richard Jones for special mention in its section on Jack the Ripper Tours as being a guide who offers “notable” walks.
The same publication also specially mentions that Richard Jones is “…one of London’s leading walking tour guides.”
