I've heard a little bit about the Jack the Ripper tour, but not much... Can anyone provide more details on what to expect from it?

I have done the same tour twice...it is bus tour that starts about 745pm. You are taken to the part of London where the murders were to have taken place. The tourguides on both trips were quite entertaining (they have some acting background). Once you arrive in Whitehall you leave the bus and you are guided through the streets where the murders happened. It's not grisly or gory, the guides describe the scenes, you go into a pub, have a beer and then continue on...They then take you
to another pub (both time it was the Albert) for
a pub dinner (paid for on your owm). Its really alot of fun.. I do know that there is another walking tour that meets at the tube stop and escorted by
a tourguide. The BTA has info on that one.
The tours cost about 21.00USD. I hope this helps.

Re: Jack the Ripper tour....

Several years ago, my 14 year old daughter and I took the Jack the Ripper walking tour. We looked up available walks in the What's On or the Time Out magazine that is available on Thursdays for the next week. The trip started at a tube stop in the East End where we were to meet the guide, a Jack the Ripper specialist, who has since published a book on who the "real" ripper was. My daughter and I were the only clients that night, and I had some misgivings about wandering around East London, in the dark, on a ripper walk, but we persevered. It was great, and worth every penny of the 4 or 5 pound cost ! We walked from murder sight to murder sight, stopping at a pub most likely frequened by Jack. The guide was excellent -- an historian by day and a chronicler of the fiendish Jack by night !

I have never tried the bus tour, but it sounds quite good. There is nothing quite like walking down damp, deserted alleys, in the heart of the east end, at night, to feel a little atmosphere.

Take the London Walks Jack the Ripper Tour which begins at the Tower of London and does the East End on foot. Much better than a bus tour and the guides for this company are the best in my opinion. You need no reservations, just show up at the prescribed time. It is a night walk. Ask any concierge or buy a copy of Time Out. You can get more info here in the states from the BTA or Borders and Barnes and Noble usually have copies of London's Time Out magazine. Enjoy
