A trip on the Wild Side in the old crime-ridden East End of London


London's notorious East End has always had a squalid and sorded reputation, and has always had links with with criminals and murderers.
One of the main highlights of this Tour is to transfer you back to the 1880's to follow in the footprints of the most famous and wanted serial killer of all time - Jack the Ripper!
But before catching up with Jack, we shall trawl the streets around the Whitechapel and Wapping districts (in the safety of my London Black Cab) to visit crime sites, where you will also hear about the deeds of another despicable 19th century terminator.
We shall also go cruising for a bruising around the haunts of the legendary Kray Twins of more recent folklore.
Who were the victims, the suspects, the gangland leaders, what was the motivation for two centuries of vicious attacks of cruelty?
This one is not for the squeamish as we get underneath the skin of London's notorious East End.
Your Private Tour will be in my iconic Traditional London Black Cab (a visitor attraction in itself).

Itinerary

Your time machine will be my London Black Cab, and 'Black' is the key word as I glide you out to the East End of London, where the Ripper murders of 1888 were not the first or last time the local populace had been scared out of their wits.
We shall explore the Wapping and Whitechapel districts to the East of the City of London to uncover the sites of murder crimes and unravel their tragic past.
I shall bring the characters and their actions to life, as you keep one eye over your shoulder for sinister stirrings in the shadows.
In Whitechapel I shall introduce you to expert Ripperologist Al Goldsmith, who knows the Jack the Ripper story inside out.
We shall then retrace Jack's footprints with Alan who will give you all the grisly detail and facts and figures at each of the Ripper murder sites.
Refreshment can be enjoyed at the end of our walkabout in a pub in Spitalfields notable for its associations with at least 2 of Jack's victims.
The comfort of my Black Cab will be then ready to lead you safely away.
