Collated on a theme or an area, if you've got some great shots of our capital and want to join in send your pictures to the usual address.

In the meantime, here are a few suitably murky-looking snaps from on and around the route of London Walks' Jack the Ripper tour. See you tonight (and every night) at 7:30

















A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
