How Do I Catch The Rest Of The Tour Up If I Am Late?
WARNING! PLEASE BE SURE TO JOIN OUR JACK THE RIPPER WALK! On occasions, it has happened that another Jack the Ripper Walk has taken to stopping in Gunthorpe Street and misled our clients into joining them. They then make them pay at the end of their tour, so please be sure that you join the original Jack the Ripper Tour you booked for with us. Ask your guide if they have your name on the guest list; if they do then it is the correct walk, if they do not then they’re not us.
DIRECTIONS FROM ALDGATE EAST STATION: From outside Exit Four of Aldgate East Station, look over the road to the left and you will see the Burger King. Cross over Whitechapel High Street via the crossing and head towards the Burger King. However, before you reach it you will see the White Hart Pub and next to it is a narrow alley called Gunthorpe Street. Turn right into Gunthorpe Street and the Jack the Ripper Walk will be in Gunthorpe Street for around 5 to 8 minutes.
DIRECTIONS FROM GUNTHORPE STREET: If the group has left Gunthorpe Street, then please continue to its far end. Turn right along Wentworth Street, then left along Brick Lane. You will shortly arrive at the Sheraz Restaurant at the junction with Thrawl Street. The walk will be here for about another 5 or so minutes.
DIRECTIONS FROM THE SHERAZ: Continue along Brick Lane until you reach Hanbury Street. Turn left along Hanbury Street and the Jack the Ripper walk will be on the right side of Hanbury Street for around 8 minutes. Because the pavement isn’t particularly wide in Hanbury Street the group may have had to move some way up it. Just walk along the street until you find the group.
DIRECTIONS FROM HANBURY STREET: Keep going to the far end of Hanbury Street, turn left along Commercial Street, keep ahead over Fournier Street and pause outside the white church of Christchurch Spitalfields. The tour will be outside this church for around four minutes.
DIRECTIONS FROM CHRISTCHURCH: Turn your back on the church and look over Commercial Street and you will see the White’s Row Car Park to the left. To the right of this car park you will see a white barrier. Cross over Commercial Street (there is a pedestrian crossing a little further along Commercial Street) and then walk into the service road just past this white barrier to the right of the car park. The Jack the Ripper Walk will be a little way along this service road on the right for around 9 minutes.
IF YOU’VE NOT FOUND THE WALK BY NOW PLEASE CALL US ON 020 7193-5793 SO WE CAN DIRECT YOU TO OUR CURRENT LOCATION. THANK YOU.
