Meeting Point - Tower Hill Underground Station
We begin next to the Tower Hill Tram Refreshment stand, just outside Tower Hill underground station. The station is on the circle and district line, and around a 10 minute walk from Monument/Bank and Aldgate.
We recommend arriving 10-15 minutes before the tour starts, it gives you plenty of time to meet the guide and grab a coffee or ice cream!
How do I find the Guide?
Head to Tower Hill Underground Station, next to the Tram Coffee stop, and look for the guide holding up a bright red umbrella.
Where does the tour start and end?
The tour starts at Tower Hill Underground Station, as you leave the station head for the Tower Hill Tram Coffee Stop and the guide should be nearby.
Do I need to make a booking? Or cancel if my plans change?
Yes please. The number of bookings we receive dictates how many guides we send to run the tour. If we have 100 extra people turn up, its not going to be a good experience for anyone. Please be aware, we do not accept groups of 8 people or more. Even if you book separately, if you attend the tour as a big group, you will be turned away. If you are a group of 8 or more please contact us to enquire about booking a private tour.
What if its raining?
If its raining, we will get wet! We always recommend you carry an umbrella in London, the weather really is that temperamental, but if we didn't run tours in bad weather, we wouldn't get to do many. Rain or shine we will be there waiting. Of course, if you don’t fancy standing in the rain with us we understand.
What should I wear?
Our tours are all walking, so we always recommend comfy shoes. Check the weather on the day of the tour, but we recommend bring a raincoat and some SPF just incase.
How is it free?*
How long is the tour?
The tour is roughly 2 hours long, but will vary on the guide.
Is there an age limit for Jack the Ripper tour?
There is no age limit, it's totally up to you and your kids if you feel brave enough to join us! The tour itself isn't scary, we don't have any actors dressed up ready to jump out at you, but there is a fair bit of blood, guts and gore, so it's totally up to you.
Prefer to join us on a Private Tour?
If you are booking for a group of 8 or more, or just want a more personal experience away from the crowds, then you can book this as a Private Tour. You can dictate the content, the route and the time or sit back and let your guide lead you.
Please note, ALL schools and educational groups should book a Private Tour.
