Whitechapel was once the site of some of the worst slums in London, Dickensian levels of poverty, a lack of housing due to an influx of immigrant communities and rife unemployment led to a wave of prostitution in the area, some of whom were killed by Whitechapel's most notorious villain, Jack the Ripper.
The slums have long since been cleared away and replaced with stylish flats or trendy conversions and Jack the Ripper only appears in costumed tours of the area, and Whitechapel is now a very desirable and bohemian place to live.
