Whitechapel Women: Beyond the Jack the Ripper Tour 2023 dates

Jan 11, 2023

In autumn of 2017 we launched our alternative walking tour which explores the lives of the 5 women killed by the unnamed murderer known as Jack the Ripper. The tour of Whitechapel in East London covers the issues facing women in the 1880s, as well as those facing the women living in the area today.

This tour is delivered by Beyond the Streets, a specialist charity which has experience of working with women for nearly 25 years in many different contexts, including those on the same streets as the Whitechapel women.

Join us to hear the untold story of Jack the Ripper’s victims. In this hidden history tour we celebrate the strength and resilience of women who experience multiple disadvantage, rather than sensationalising the criminal acts of a serial killer. 



Visiting the streets where the women lived, we will explore what we know about their lives, and commemorate their deaths. Alongside the historic, you’ll hear the stories of women still affected by sexual exploitation in the area today and how you can take action on these issues.

”Our tour guides were knowledgeable, passionate and insightful. They drew poignant and effective parallels between the women then and now…What a great experience this tour was!”

This helps offer routes out of sexual exploitation for women in East London and nationally.
