Welcome to Alone In The Dark Entertainment's Victorian Murder Tour site the home of the Blackgate Murders.
He came silently out of the Dean Street shadows of November 26th, 1886. Watching, Stalking, Waiting drink-sodden with a want for murder. Leaving a lifeless prostitute dead with her throat sliced. Yes, something wicked this way walked, for this is the slashing ground of the Dean Street Killer. We evoke that winter of gas light and fog, of menacing shadows and stealthy footsteps - as we inspect the murder sites, sift through the evidence - in all its gory detail - and get to grips, so to speak, with the main suspects. Afterward you can steady your nerves in The Red House, pub where the victims once worked as lady's of the night and spent time - perhaps with the Killer himself.
And please tread carefully and keep away from the shadows… for you are about to enter The Blackgate. Which is by way of saying, the setting itself couldn’t be more dramatic. Minutes into the walk a Building stands with wooden drawbridges and takes form of one of the most haunted locations in the Northeast it takes us into a hideaway where the grim old Newcastle, Castle entry rears up directly before us. It’s a hideaway so dark and so still that you can hear people breathing, a place where the clock seems permanently turned back to the Victorian murders of old Newcastle, back to the location of many DEATHS.
