Jack the Ripper Tour
5:40 pm starting at the Thistle Victoria, London, England * http://www.premiumtours.co.uk * 19.50 cost.
One of London’s most chilling tours offering its patrons a coach drive through dark london – the Old Bailey (site of public hangings), Royal London Hospital where Elephant Man lived, the Wallace Plague where Bravehart was tortured, and many other gang related warfare, butchers, murders, and muggings took place. Then a walk through the East End where crime used to run rampant seeing where the victims of Jack the Ripper lost their lives. A Terror of the Thames cruises to see the bridges where murders took place. Then resting at the Sherlock Holmes pub for some fish and chips. The tour leader is very knowledgable and it was a very historic – “see London” tour, as you won’t see much of the grim as most of the sites and monuments are concreted over or filled with commercial space. Educating nonetheless. Rating: 3 stars out of 5. Tour guide was very friendly and knowledgable (rating 4 stars out of 5 for his wisdom).
