Default Whitehchapel pubs, with a Ripper connection......

Being a regular visitor to Whitechapel, I like to just walk round the place. I've done the murder scenes to death (pardon the pun) and I think most will agree with regards to them there's not a great deal to see. Some parts of the district do make it possible to imagine what it was like there "back in the day".

On my most recent visit, I decided to try and visit every pub with a Ripper connection, still in existence..............

Culpeper (Princess Alice) on Commercial Street - Pizer & Coles are known to have frequented.

King's Store on Sandy Row - Kelly being a patron.

10 Bells - no introduction needed there.

The Bell on Middlesex Street - Coles drank there.

Pride of Spitalfields Heneage Street - Hardiman & Hutchinson (Ripper suspects) both used this pub as their local.

Duke of Wellington Brune Street - no connection but pretty much in the middle of the area, someone with a connection must have drank in there

The Brown Bear on Lemen Street - of Ripper Street fame.

What I found most interesting was that none of these pubs had jumped on the band wagon as tourist attractions. I even asked the landlord of the Brown Bear why he hadn't done so.

Having had two pints in each (3 in The Bell), I was slightly soaked

Would be interested to know if I've missed any for next time.........

Hi Cat
Interesting idea for a thread. are all the ones you mention still open and operating as pubs?

That's interesting so it does have a sort of a Ripper connection after all.

Of course, forgot about that one. Have sunk many a pint in there over the years



There's also the Blind Beggar (of Kray fame), would be interested to know whether that has an Ripper connection?

Yes most certainly!!! A couple are a bit trendy now, but most of them still retain an atmosphere (well I think so). Certainly well worth visiting!!!

Was the 10 Bells known as the 'Jack The Ripper' for a while or did I dream that?

Not a dream, for a short period it was. Glad they changed it back.

Yes it was. There was also a bar in lower Manhattan by the name of "Jack the Ripper" and neither succeeded, which to my mind is significant. Similarly there has never been a major play or musical based on the case. Given that the Whitechapel murders were a true-life case, perhaps it's too close to the bone!
