Cockney rebels: murder, gangs and sedition in The East End.

A foreign land within the precincts of London, the East End has always been a haven for outlaws, murderers, and gangsters, and is the site of some of the most terrible crimes in British history

Today, a vibrant district of London, we will travel back to discover a time when the East End was full of gambling dens, brothels, gangs and lone murders who stalked the night. The infamous murders of Jack the Ripper and the Kray twins, whose ‘Firm’ ruled the East End with an iron fist in the swinging sixties, are just the beginning; we go deeper into the East End’s sordid history to hear largely forgotten tales of body snatchers who murdered the poor to sell their bodies for medical research and the shootout where Winston Churchill got a bullet through his top hat!


  • - Discover the truth behind legendary East End figures such as Jack the Ripper and the Kray Twins.
  • - Learn of now forgotten crimes that once rocked Britain to its core.
  • - Get off the usual East End tourist trail
