Unfortunately we woke up to rain. It wasn't down pouring though so we decided to still go ahead with our plans to visit the Tower of London. I went there as a kid and I credit this as the place where I first realized how awesome history was. That would eventually lead to me to studying it in college and getting my degree in it.
That night we headed back to the Tower of London because that happened to be where the free Jack the Ripper tour started. I was a little concerned about doing a free tour because I wasn't sure what to expect. It was, however, fantastic. They work for tips so they really put on the best show possible in hopes that you'll pay what you think it was worth. I start the tour thinking I'd give a few pounds, and pretty soon into I thought, "this is worth way more than that! £5 at least!" That at least doubled by the end of the tour. It really was awesome.
Of course I feel bad saying that such a gruesome tour was "awesome" but it was interesting to hear that tours like that one had been going on pretty much since the murders took place. Our guide told us that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle even once did a Jack the Ripper tour. I unfortunately don't have any pictures of the tour since it was dark out, but I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting London.
