Ratcliff Highway Murders (True Crime) Walking Tour
August 30, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The East End of London. The 1800s. A series of murders of unrivalled brutality, captivating the attention of newspaper readers across England and beyond. ‘Jack the Ripper’? Not quite. 77 years before the Ripper, London was abuzz with talk of seven killings in 12 days in Shadwell and Wapping.
On New Year’s Eve, the sorry tale came to an end with a gruesome parade through the East End streets of the supposed murderer.
On this tour, true crime author and tour guide TREVOR BOND will take you around the murder sites and explore the grisly history of 24 days that rocked Georgian England – a two and a half hour exploration of a largely forgotten sensation, including a stop in a lovely and historic riverside pub!
Cost is £10 ticket.
