Jack the Ripper School Tours


Recently Voted number 1 in London, we are now the first choice when it comes to Jack the Ripper tours by the majority of Schools, Universities and teachers to promote the new educational curriculum in helping students to learn about 19th century investigation techniques compared to modern day policing methods.

Walk with the best

The history of Victorian London and Jack the Ripper is now an important part of the school curriculum and who better to teach your students than the experts themselves. Hailed by many as the leading authorities on the crimes our Jack the Ripper tour guides have advised historical documentaries, authors, film makers and tv shows including “Ripper Street” and “Whitechapel”.

Unrivalled Expertise

Our team have organised every official Jack the Ripper conference since 1997, gathering the worlds leading experts together including Martin Fido, Stewart Evans, Donald Rumbelow, Paul Begg, Laura Richards and many more. We are the first to learn of new discoveries in the field, new suspects, hidden documents or photographs.

The most up-to-date Ripper tour in London

Most Jack the Ripper tours have been running for over 25 years and hail from a bygone time when there were very few facts, no information and relied solely on hearsay and rumour. Our Ripper Vision tour is the first and only tour of its kind to bring the 21st century to the case, we have swept away the fiction, rumours and hear say to deliver the cold hard facts of the case.

Using police reports, eye witness testimony and psychological profiling we can at last present the definitive story of the Autumn of terror. Shedding new light on who the killer might have been.

Entertaining and thought provoking

Keeping your students entertained and taking in information is one of the hardest achievements any teacher can hope for. Luckily we understand this that is why we are the ONLY tour to use:

  • Expert guides with over 20 years experience.
  • Story telling that captivates.
  • State-of-the-art crime scene photographs.
  • Years of dedicated research made exciting.
  • We deliver an outstanding experience unrivalled by any tour company.

The only tour to use modern criminal profiling

Since 1988 great advances have been made in understanding the motives and patterns of serial killers. Today we call this process “Criminal profiling” and is one of the main tools used by every police force in the world. We are the ONLY Ripper company to follow and use modern criminal profiling and geographic mapping techniques, created by leading experts such as:

  • John E Douglas FBI (one of the first ever criminal profilers).
  • Roy Hazelwood FBI (The ripper project 1988).
  • Laura Richard, Scotland yard (psychological study of Violent offenders).

Learn about Jack the Ripper and the modern day serial killer. Your guide will encourage this discussion with your students and listen to their theories and answer any questions they may have. We may even offer a prize for the best theory.

Who was Jack the Ripper?

The secret identity of Jack the Ripper has remained hidden in the shadows of the Victorian night for more that 126 years. However with modern criminal profiling and geographic mapping, we can finally narrow down the search. At the end of the tour we reveal:

  • The face of the man the police of 1888 should have been looking for.
  • The area he would have lived and where the police should have concentrated their search.
  • The type of person he would have been.
  • Why the police were unable to catch him.
