The South East England region
Whitechapel is most known for probably the world’s most famous unidentified murderer, Jack the Ripper, who stalked Whitechapel in 1888, murdering prostitutes and eluding police. The Royal London Hospital has been in Whitechapel since 1757.
Whitechapel was filled to bursting with all types of immigrants by the 19th century, and the place eventually became known for prostitution – during the 1880s there were 80 brothels and about 1400 prostitutes within Whitechapel’s boundaries. Many of the slums were torn down or eventually bombed during WWII, and the area today, although not overtly posh, has almost no resemblance to the infamous area that was synonymous with vicious crime and murder.
Central London/Zone 2
Whitechapel Bell Foundry (www.whitechapelbellfoundry.co.uk) is the oldest manufacturing company in Britain. They’re responsible for casting Big Ben and the Libery Bell in Philadelphia. Although the Liberty Bell cracked on the first stroke, Big Ben has proven to be well worth the £572 it cost to make.
Elephant Man exhibit in the Royal hospital's museum is a free exhibition about 5 minutes walk from the apartment.
At Whitechapel Market, across from the Royal London Hospital, you can buy loads of Asian spices, jewellery and clothing. It might look a bit messy but it smells fantastic.
When it’s not:
Whitechapel Art Gallery (www.whitechapel.org) has been bringing some much needed culture to the area since 1901. It’s currently expanding the building with plans to double in size by 2009.
