Jack the Ripper Tour Pictures

Published on 27 June 2023 at 11:34

On our Monday night in London, we took a Jack the Ripper tour. It was fascinating to be in the Whitechapel area of London and walk the streets where these notorious murders took place. Although many of the buildings that were there in the late 1800's are no longer in existence, the area itself still has a 19th century feel in many ways. I didn't take a lot of photos, I realized after the fact, and I actually had to go back and do research on what some of the photos represented. In doing this, I came across a YouTube video of the very tour we took with the same guide. He was quite engaging with a touch of theatrics to make it more interesting. I am going to attach a link to the video here for anyone interested. He does ask for the 'cameraman' to stop recording towards the end as he prepares to share his experience as a 'Ripperologist', some of the descendants he has known, and provides his theory of who the murderer was. If you haven't seen the Johnny Depp movie "From Hell" ~ I highly recommend it. This movie follows the same theory as our tour guide holds, and is actually quite scandalous if indeed true. I have found in my reading journeys of several books by different authors, that each person's story can really hold weight as you read their case for their individual theory. Here lies the explanation for the continued fascination and mystery of the Jack the Ripper murders.

We did think it was a worthwhile tour - something different and fun, so for those interested - we would recommend.
