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.........
