I Digress – A Break From Jack the Ripper

A Break From Jack the Ripper.

Richard Jones takes you across Abbey Road’s iconic and world-famous pedestrian crossing.

Although we are well known for our east End tours, indeed we are probably one of the best known Jack the Ripper Tours in London, we offer a wide range of other London walks and, in keeping with our ethos, of showing you the wide variety of things to do in London, today we’re going to digress from talk about Jack the Ripper and, instead, take you to a totally different, yet equally iconic. London locations.

People who join us for a Jack the Ripper Tour often ask if we can suggest other places to visit or tours to take. Well the truth is that, in the words of Bob the Builder (who he? Ed) “Yes We Can!”

Richard Jones, who began our Jack the Ripper Walk in 1982 has devised many tours that have gone on to become classics on the London Walking Tour scene.

In 1988 Richard was the first person to devise and offer a Beatles London walk. Recently he began filming a series of short films around various London locations to show people who might not be able to get to London, or who are planning a visit to London, what these locations are like.

You’ve already seen some of the films we’ve put up on our innovative Jack the Ripper TV. So today we thought we’d take a break from the East End and head for north London to show you the Abbey Road pedestrian crossing that was immortalised by the Beatles on their Abbey Road album cover.
