Conspiracy Walking Tours in London on the trail of Jack the Ripper
Launched in April 2010, the London Conspiracy Walks are very much the new kid on the block and this is perhaps what gives them the edge over their competitors.
Though there are many walks that offer fascinating subject matter such as Jack the Ripper and Sherlock Holmes, or familiar book and films sets such as James Bond, Harry Potter and the Da Vinci Code, they are predictable, bland and, quite frankly uninspiring. London Conspiracy Walks on the other hand aim to intrigue.
Advertised as 'The Most Thought-provoking Tours in London,' the Conspiracy walks certainly live up to their billing, with each subject matter featuring some element of conspiracy or conspiracy theory.
Needless to say it makes for an interesting tour of London and gives participants plenty of food for thought long after the tour has ended.
