See the sinister side of London as you follow the blood-soaked footsteps of murderers Jack the Ripper and Sweeney Todd down gas-lit alleyways on a ghost walking tour of London. Arrive at each scary spot by motor coach as you listen to your guide dish out the gory details of the infamous killers on your provided headsets. Expect goosebumps as you approach Drury Lane, the most haunted theater in the city, and Fleet Street, but it's the stories of Jack the Ripper on the East End that will have you trembling with fear!
The year is 1888. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has just published his first Sherlock Holmes story; meanwhile, in the Whitechapel district of London's East End, five women are brutally murdered by the world's first recognized serial killer, Jack the Ripper.

See where Jack the Ripper preyed on his victims while your guide runs through some of the suspects in this unsolved case. Scotland Yard even considered Queen Victoria's grandson, the Duke of Clarence, to be a suspect at one point! It's one of several stops along a ghost walk of London's most notorious haunts.

Your tour commences at your selected departure point with a drive on the darker side of London. Pop in your state-of-the-art Vox whisper headphones and listen to your guide describe each site. You will see Drury Lane, which is said to be the most haunted theater in London, and your guide will explain why! Next, visit the Old Bailey—a site of numerous public hangings—and Fleet Street, home of the demonic barber Sweeny Todd and his accomplice Mrs Lovett, who allegedly baked pies from the flesh of his victims and sold them to unsuspecting customers.

Once in Whitechapel, disembark your motor coach and walk this death trail to inspect some of Jack the Ripper's murder sites, decipher the evidence and discuss the suspects. You'll even see the Ten Bells pub, established in 1752, where many of the merciless killer's victims came to drink.

The tour finishes at a traditional pub near Trafalgar Square—you might need a drink (own expense) to calm your nerves after this enthralling ghost walk.
