Uncover the forgotten stories of the women of Whitechapel
Join us from the comfort of your couch for the “5 Women + Jack the Ripper” virtual tour. Be transported back to 1800’s Whitechapel and learn about the lives of the five victims of history’s most infamous serial killer.
Together with your tour guide, you’ll ‘virtually’ visit the key London locations in the deaths of Polly, Annie, Elizabeth, Catherine and Mary Jane. You’ll explore their stories and dissect the evidence of their murders. You’ll also be privy to an eerie 360 video of our walking tour, allowing you to follow in the steps of Whitechapel’s residents.
My boyfriend and I watched The Virtual Jack the Ripper tour yesterday and it was fantastic! Very informative, and the guide Anna had great delivery and was very engaging and had loads of extra knowledge about other serial killers. She interacted with customers throughout the tour and kept us engaged with a fun quiz and the winner got a prize! I really could not stomach the photos of the victims though!
Brilliant tour, completely gruesome – highly recommend!
We didn’t realise it would be real-time vs. pre-recorded. We loved how interactive it was. My daughter and I watched together and from now, these virtual tours will become a regular Saturday evening experience. Thank you from Tracey & Kai (Cape Town, South Africa)
