About the event

Jack the Ripper is the most infamous serial killer in history. Much is known about his grisly murders, but what about the mysterious buildings and streets that formed the dark and sinister backdrop to his murderous deeds? For the first time and especially for Hallowe’en these mysterious locations are to be brought to life with London Architecture Walks’ brand new Criminal London walk. Learn how the Victorian London through which Jack the Ripper walked was a rich urban townscape of lively markets, ornate pubs and magnificent churches. Uncover the dark underworld lurking beneath, and discover how the East End’s historic but menacing network of secluded alleyways, hidden courtyards, eerie passages and solemn graveyards formed the silent accomplice to Jack the Ripper’s horrific crimes.
