The Ten Bells is a historic pub located at the corner of Commercial Street and Fournier Street in London. It’s most likely most notable for its association with infamous serial killer, Jack the Ripper. Two victims of this elusive killer, Annie Chapman and Mary Jane Kelly, were frequent guests of the pub. The two sex-workers would often pick up clients outside the Ten Bells.
On the evening of 7 September, 1888, Annie finished off her drink and walked out into the chilly winter air. Little did she know, she would be Jack the Ripper’s next victim. The following morning, her bloody and mutilated body was discovered on Haybury Street.
It’s no surprise that there is a plethora of paranormal activity reported from the Ten Bells. Staff and guests alike have recalled seeing an elderly man clad in Victorian-era clothing loitering around the pub before disappearing, seemingly into thin air. Ohers have reported that when the clock strikes midnight on 31 December, a shadowy figure can be seen jumping from Westminster Bridge. This shadowy figure is said to be Jack the Ripper himself.
