Secrets of London Walking Tour

6. Secrets of London Walking Tour

The tour begins in the corner of Trafalgar Square, where you will be given a brief outline of what you can expect, but of course, as the tour is secret, you won't be told everything. For the next 1.5-hours, the guide will take you on a journey through back streets and alleyways, in an endeavor to show you places which time has forgotten. Early on in the tour, visit a tiny old police station which Londoners walk past every day but never realize its historical significance. The tour then heads onto streets associated with J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter. Along the way, you will be shown the discrete social club which has its roots in a more eccentric 18th century London. The next part of the tour is very atmospheric, as you'll appear to be transported back to the time of Charles Dickens, looking out for old gas lamps, signs and door knockers, nestled beside old pubs hidden off the main thoroughfares.  And if that isn't enough, you'll then be treated to one of London's most extraordinary stories of superstition, an enduring ceremony for a king, and to finish off the group will go off searching for one of the city's most mysterious pieces of art - the Duke of Wellington's nose.

Our tour guide's name was Jack and he made the experience a true entertainment. From memorizing intriguing Jack the Ripper letters and delivering west end quality soliloquy amongst chronologically regaling the story, we were on the edge of our heels the entire time. Jack, our tour guide, showed us fascinating pictures of the events from the late 1800s whilst floating us around to the many crime locations. He illustratively brought to life the specific geographical location of Whitechapel and the city of London to ruminate the replaced architecture as if we were walking the victorian streets of the time. I’d highly recommend Jack as a tour guide! 5 stars!!

Our guide, Tom, was excellent. Although he is clearly often the guide on this walk he managed to make it feel fresh. He was informative, good fun, and fhroughout the two hours always willing to answer any questions members of the group had, showing that his knowledge of ripperology extends way beyond the material he covered during the walk. I parti ularly appreciated that he gave background information on Whitechapel in the 1880s, providing context to the crimes we were learning about.

With the most fitting of names, Jack, the tour guide, was brilliant! Entertaining, educational, and a real thought provoking experience. An evening well spent - Jack was super enticing, his knowledge was second to none and the delivery was even better. Highly recommended to any aspiring Ripperologists.

This was a really great tour. Our guide, Glenn was awesome. He was informative and funny and the tour was paced nicely

Our tour guide Jack was amazing. He did a great job in walking us through this.
