Yep! A few doors up from the Wellington, at 6 Toynbee Street.

Some would say that is exploiting the murders (and thus the victims too), although others might insist that the name is just a witty observation on local history....

Indeed however apart from the odd thing in the London Dungeon, a figure at the old Wax works there is not much 'exploitation' of Jack and his poor victims. Some might say more might have been expected.

However there are a fair few 'walks' that are full every night so I guess the walk hosts have made the most from it all..

Are we forgetting the very controversial JTR 'museum' in Cable Street?

There is a potential connection to The Blind Beggar. A character named Stephen Maywood, who almost certainly knew MJK, claimed to have had a bag of gold coins stolen from his cart outside the pub.

While I am a supporter of the Ripper walks when they are well done by a good historian, the argument could be made that, nonetheless, such walks glorify Jack the Ripper and his bloody deeds.

That's cool, will have a pint there for Maywood and his gold coins next time I'm in town


Have never been to the "musuem" mind as I've heard it's dreadful?
