How Far In Advance Should I Book A Tour?

It is advisable to book as far in advance as possible since the Jack the Ripper Walk is very popular and often sells out. Should you need to move your date we will endeavour to do so subject to us having availability on the required date. If for any reason you can’t make the tour please let us know as we can often re-sell your places and issue a refund or a change of date to you.

How Long Does Your Walk Last?

Our tour takes around two hours and is done at a moderate walking pace with frequent stops for the guide to tell you the Jack the Ripper story.

What Happens If It Rains?

Our Jack the Ripper Tour takes place regardless of weather conditions. We go rain, shine, and especially in thick, thick fog!


By being aware of the forecast for the day of your tour – or even three days before. That way  you can dress accordingly and ensure that you still get the maximum enjoyment from participating in London’s most atmospheric tour of Jack the Ripper’s London.

It is worth remembering that the old alleyways and cobbled thoroughfares are at their most atmospheric when the cold winds blow, the rain falls and the fog swirls.

Are There Toilets Along The Route?

There are no public toilets on the route. We ask that participants attend to all toiletry needs before commencing the tour. There are several pubs that we pass where you may be able to use their toilets, but this is strictly at the discretion of the pub managers.

Do People Jump Out On The Tour?

Most certainly not. Or at least if they do they are nothing to do with us! The Jack the Ripper story is a fascinating one and does not need gimmicks to grip the imaginations of participants.

Does The Walk Stop Off At Pubs?

Our Jack the Ripper tours do not stop off at pubs. There are several pubs in the area where the tour finishes though, see our local food and drink recommendations here!
