Mitre Square is a small, quiet square heading off Mitre Street, Aldgate. It has three entrances: one from Mitre Street, the second leading from Duke Street via the narrow Church Passage, and the third leading from St James's Place.

Above: One of the only Ripper murder scenes to retain its name, this is a view of Mitre Square, Aldgate. This view looks eastward at St James's Passage, which was called Church Passage at the time of the murder. The passage leads to Duke's Place and further into Aldgate. Just behind the flower box and towards the fence is the site where Catherine Eddowes was found murdered. Taken: Thursday, May 13, 1999. Photograph courtesy of Johnno.
Above: A close-up view of the modern buildings in Mitre Square which now stand in the northern corner (opposite the corner where Catherine Eddowes was found) in place of Kearley & Tonge's buildings, which stood there in 1888. The entrance to the Mitre Passage can be seen in the bottom left corner of the picture. Taken: Thursday, May 13, 1999. Photograph courtesy of Johnno.
Above: A full view of Mitre Square looking west from St James's Passage (formerly Church Passage). The murder scene is to the left of where the person is sitting. Mitre Street lies immediately behind. As can be seen from the photo, Mitre Square still retains its cobblestones, one of the very few reminders of what the square would have looked like in 1888. Taken: Thursday, May 13, 1999. Photograph courtesy of Johnno.
Above: A view of Mitre Square looking south-east from Mitre Passage. The school can be seen in the background, and St James's Passage (formerly Church Passage) can be seen to the left of the black poles. The scene of the murder is now shown, but is off to the right of the picture. Taken: Thursday, May 13, 1999. Photograph courtesy of Johnno.
