About Dotmaker Tours
Dotmaker Tours lead London walks to change your perspective. The walks are available on scheduled dates, and at other times to private groups. Each guided walk covers a different part of London, including the West End, the City, the area to the south of Canary Wharf and Greenwich. They are based on unusual themes such as power, waste, sound and slowness. We consider how those themes relate to the area - past, present and future. The walks are designed to trigger conversation, and give an immersive experience. For example, you might find yourself awed by judges in the Royal Courts of Justice, revelling in reflected sounds from St Paul's Cathedral bells or marvelling at methods of transforming the capital's dust. The walks are led by life-long Londoner, Rosie Oliver. Rosie has a background as an environmental lawyer. These days she divides her time between leading London walks and producing spoken audio features and podcasts.

Rosie was an informative and fun guide around the chimneys and tunnels of Greenwich. It was a thoughtful interesting tour which took in the area in a new way. If you love learning about history in different ways and seeing things from a new angle this is for you. Thanks Rosie!

This was my third tour with Rosie - and the fact I've been on three walks with her now probably says all you need to know! This time it was the Rubbish walk, taking in all sorts of places around Docklands that I'd never seen before despite living in London for decades. Rosie's great for not only talking very evocatively about history but also making us consider more than just how things looked - we're encouraged to think about smells, for example (which obviously makes sense when she's talking about rubbish!). The tour included a stroll through the farm at Mudchute, complete with pigs (nature's perfect garbage disposal units) and ended up with a spot of mudlarking on the Thames (up to a point - you need a licence to do it properly). As always, I came away having laughed a lot, learnt a lot and with a sense that London is always full of surprises. And as always, I thoroughly recommend it!

What a fabulous day spent with Rosie for what was a hugely enthusiastic and vastly interesting Chimneys and Tunnels tour along the Thames. Always great to learn new facts and information and to see such fascinating places, places you would never even notice if you didn't have the expertise and knowledge so beautifully delivered from Rosie!

Great tour guide Rosie, very friendly and engaging into being in the moment and thinking of what you are looking at. Did Greenwich to Isle of Dogs tour 'Tunnels & Chimneys' which is great for Londoners to see their industrial surroundings and connect to a bit of local history. Perfect for Saturday walk.
