True Crime Taxi Tour

“A True Crime tour….on the trail of Ruth Ellis”


Talk about knowledge! London and UK Taxi Tours knows a lot about the notorious case of Ruth Ellis, who was found guilty and hanged in 1955 for murdering her lover David Blakley outside the Magdala public house in Hampstead, north London. Ray Coggin drove us around all the haunts from Knightsbridge to Hampsead that had been frequented by this notorious pair, with a running commentary about the story…all the intricate nooks and crannies, Ray brought the story from over 60 years ago to life. To anyone interested in true crime, particularly the story of the last woman to be hanged in the UK, this tour is a must. I thoroughly recommend it.

Enthused by learning more about the case of Ruth Ellis and the murder of David Blakely I took a trip in Ray’s taxi and I was not disappointed. Part of me wondered how Ray would mould a tour around what was effectively a quick one off murder in Hampstead but it soon became clear that Ray was keen on telling the bigger picture….

I was transported into the world of post war London, of after hours clubs, cads and call girls. Where bohemians, gangsters and the secret service mixed in (dis)harmony. Ray’s knowledge is epic and he even through in some sites not related to the Ruth Ellis case.

I thoroughly recommend!
