A JOURNEY AROUND THE SITES
WHERE THE JACK THE RIPPER MURDERS OCCURRED
JACK THE RIPPER MURDER SITES - INTRODUCTION
Jack the Ripper experts Richard Jones, Paul Begg and Lindsay Siviter take you on a tour around the various Jack the Ripper murder sites in the East End of London.
BUCK'S ROW - SITE OF MARY NICHOLS MURDER
The journey around the Jack the Ripper Murder sites begins with a visit to Durward Street.
In 1888 this was known as Buck's Row and it was here at around 3.40am on 31st August 1888 that the body of Jack the Ripper's first victim, Mary Nichols, was discovered.
HANBURY STREET - SITE OF ANNIE CHAPMAN'S MURDER
Our journey around the Jack the Ripper Murder sites arrives in Hanbury Street where, on 8th September 1888, the body of Annie Chapman was discovered in the backyard of number 29.
Richard Jones introduces the site and talks about the discovery of the body, whilst Jenny Philips and Lindsay Siviter fill in the details of the second Jack the Ripper Murder.
BERNER STREET - SITE OF ELIZABETH STRIDE'S MURDER
The next stop on our tour around the Jack the Ripper Murder Sites in London is Berner Street where, at 1am on 30th September 1888, the body of Elizabeth Stride was discovered.
Richard Jones guides you to the murder site, Lindsay Siviter details the injuries sustained by Elizabeth Stride, whilst Paul Begg explains how a witness may well have seen Elizabeth Stride in the act of being murdered by Elizabeth Stride.
MITRE SQUARE - SITE OF CATHERINE EDDOWES MURDER
The tour of the Jack the Ripper Murder sites continues to Mitre Square. It was here, at 145am on 30th September 1888,that PC Watkins discovered the body of Catherine Eddowes, the fourth victim of Jack the Ripper.
GOULSTON STREET - JACK THE RIPPER'S ONLY CLUE
Following the murder of Catherine Eddowes in Mitre Square PC Alfred Long discovered a bloodstained piece of her apron in a doorway on nearby Goulston Street. This was the only clue that Jack the Ripper left behind because it tells us which direction the ripper headed in when he escaped from Mitre Square.
It also tells us how much blood Jack the Ripper would have had on his person as he fled through the streets after his crimes.
But the police also found a piece of graffiti above the apron which read "The Juwes are the Men that will not be blamed for nothing."
Richard Jones introduces the discoveries whilst Paul Begg discusses the importance of the two clues and reveals what became of them.
MILLER'S COURT - SITE OF MARY KELLY'S MURDER
Our journey around the Jack the Ripper Murder sites ends at Miller's Court, off Dorset Street, where the body of Mary Kelly was discovered at 10.45am on 9th November 1888.
Richard Jones sets the scene and describes the horrific site that confronted the police when they entered Mary Kelly's Room.
JACK THE RIPPER MURDER SITES - CONCLUSION
Richard Jones concludes his tour of the Jack the Ripper Murder sites by explaining that much of the evidence in the Jack the Ripper case has disappeared from official files making it almost impossible to now know for certain who the police in 1888 thought Jack the Ripper was.
