About Secret Chamber Events

Secret Chamber Tours was established in 2009 by brothers Colin and Richard Cobb. Two born entertainers, they aspired to share their passion for history in an engaging and exciting way. The very first tour to be launched was The Titanic Walking Tour in Belfast by life-long Titanorak Colin Cobb. At that stage very little was being done in Belfast to utilise the birthplace of history’s most famous ship and Titanic Walking Tours arrived at just the right time as the world began to take notice on the lead-up to the 2012 centenary of the sinking. Colin was offered the operatorship of Titanic’s Dock and Pump-House, the last place Titanic sat on dry ground, which became the base of the walking tours.

Next came Richard Cobb’s main venture, The Jack the Ripper Tour. As a Ripperologist Richard was keen to bring something new to the scene in East London, where Ripper tours were already prominent, leading to the creation of “Rippervision”. “Rippervision” allows the audience to have a more immersive and engaging experience as the guides carry handheld projectors, used to project huge photos and crime scene images onto the real locations from 1888. The Jack the Ripper Tour has since become the most popular Ripper tour in London and the highest rated on Tripadvisor. Furthermore, in 2012, 2013 and 2015 Secret Chamber Tours organised and ran the official Jack the Ripper Conference with leading Ripper experts and historians, and delegates from around the world.

Another successful Secret Chamber Tour is East London is the Krays Tour – the popularity of which has been substantial, in particular following the release of the 2015 film Legend, chronicling the story of the Krays Brothers.

Further ventures in Belfast include Ghost Walk Belfast was partnered with NIPRA (Northern Ireland Paranormal Research Association) in 2015 to create a unique paranormal ghost hunt. Also, launched in 2014, is the very exciting Legends of the North which showcases the best of what Northern Ireland has to offer, from Belfast, to the Giant’s Causeway, to Londonderry and more besides.

If all of this wasn’t enough Secret Chamber Tours launched the official UK Crime Club in 2014, which hosts crime related events around the UK throughout the year.

It is the goal of Secret Chamber Tours to excite and enthrall the public on each and every one of its tours and through every event. With new ventures always on the horizon, watch this space!
