What to expect

Your expert local guide starts the Grim Reaper tour by looking over the Tower of London, believed to be the most haunted building in the city. Whether you believe in spirits or not, the dark history of those who were imprisoned in the Tower of London and executed on its doorstep will give you a new appreciation for crime and punishment in Olde England.

The 2-hour tour starts in the 1400s, a long time before London had an official police force, when tyrants rules and preyed on the weak. Your local guide will walk you through London’s East End, explaining the poverty and overcrowding the residents lived in, as well as telling you about the plague pits that were dug when the Black Plague hit.

Of course, no tour of London’s dark history would be complete without discussing Jack the Ripper, who was never caught and never identified. See the Prostitutes’ Church where he picked some of his victims, hear how he gradually got more and more brazen with the murders, discuss some of the suspects, and end the tour near the bar where his final victim was last seen alive.
