A thrilling Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde experience in London

Do you want to step into a gothic horror story? This Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde audio walking tour through London makes it possible!

Mr. Utterson has always been a loyal friend of Doctor Henry Jekyll’s. But lately, even he has started questioning the judgement of the revered doctor. Why did Dr Jekyll suddenly want to change his will, hence leaving his fortune to a man everyone seems to despise and fear? Why does he isolate himself and disappear for weeks on end? And most importantly; what kind of horrid experiments is he conducting in his laboratory?

Anne Stevenson is an ambitious journalist, who has uncovered the unbelievable story of the shapeshifting doctor. She will guide you through the dark Victorian streets and alleys of London on this thrilling audio walking tour. Anne is eager to share all the details of a gruesome string of murders occurring around London’s busy Fleet Street with you. Your journalist friend is relying on your help, because no editor will allow her to publish the news in the paper. In other words, she needs you and anyone else who will listen, to spread the word about the murders.
