JACK THE RIPPER
On this 10k running tour, as we jog through the back-alleys of East London, you'll be transported back to Victorian London at the time of the Whitechapel Murders. Our tour begins by running you through the tragic events of 1888 and the surrounding social history: the police, the press and the conditions for East Londoners. But we'll also have time to explore a number of theories of that age-old question - Who Was Jack the Ripper?

5* TRIPADVISOR REVIEW
"Another fantastic running tour from Secret London Runs! I just finished watching the BBC documentary and your tour was way better and your ideas about the suspect much more plausible... Thanks Claire for a great run!"
"Fantastic running tour around Whitechapel, hearing the story of the UK’s most notorious serial killer. Importantly, the tour focused on the victims and made sure their stories were known. As we were running, we covered more ground than your average Jack the Ripper tour and really got to delve into Whitechapel’s past."
