Serial Killers: The Blood & Tears London Walk’ is a long-running and well-reviewed tour that shares a victim-focused perspective on true crimes. Your friendly & passionate Guide, Declan McHugh, wrote the bestseller Bloody London; he has researched serial killers for over 30 years.

This true crime tour includes not only Jack the Ripper, but also TEN other serial killers, including Dennis Nilsen, Peter Sutcliffe, and others. Some are well-known, others less so. Two are still uncaught.

For all its glories, like any city, London has a dark side. You’ll see parts of the city you wouldn’t normally visit as you trace the footsteps of this unsavoury collection of London and other serial killers.

You’ll hear grim stories of hideous and heart-breaking crimes, do insightful, interactive profiling exercises, and hear about solved and unsolved murders. All the while, the alleys will get darker and creepier!

To bring the grim history alive, Declan incorporates historical photographs with his well-researched stories. As a former actor, Declan knows how to entertain. He’s a spell-binding cinematic storyteller who knows how to build tension with information AND entertainment.

You may arrive with morbid curiosity, but you’ll leave the tour sadder and wiser, knowing far more about serial killers than when you came. A promise and a warning: you won’t easily forget this immersive experience that does not glorify serial killers.
