Jack the Ripper Tours

When I was in London, one of the things I really enjoyed was the Jack the Ripper tour. I thought it would be a little spooky, but it turned out to be a very interesting history lesson for me.

We met up near dusk and took a walking tour along the Thames. While we were on the walk, the guide pointed out to us the places where several victims' bodies had been found and described how the murders had come about. I was fascinated to hear her theory about who the Ripper was. (She fingered a judge, though she was quick to say that was her own opinion based on the evidence we have today.)

The story is really interesting, and walking by the river at dusk is quite fun. If you get a chance to do the Jack the Ripper walking tour when you are in London, don't miss it.
