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.

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.

We enjoyed a tour in a large group, parents and children ranging an age from 6 to 14. Rosie brought the experience to life with her engaging personality and focus on details that we would never otherwise have noticed. She arranged games for the children, pointing out great art and historic facts for all of us. The area is exciting as typifying the ever-changing face of London with new developments and historic cites. We had a great lunch down at Trinity Wharf. Thanks again Rosie for making our friends reunion so special.

Took the fascinating Trinity Buoy Wharf tour and loved it. Having lived in London for 25 years it made me realise how much I didn’t know about the city. Rosie knits together all the disparate strands so well and is wonderful company. It was a delightful way to spend a few hours on a Saturday. Heartily recommend it.

Thank you Rosie, for taking us all on such a fascinating, surprising, and unusual walk on Saturday - everyone (from the age of 6-56!) thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Such a treat to explore such unexpected and exciting backwaters of London along the Thames, and to be able to put all the new developments, ventures and initiatives into the context of the history of London and the river. Highly recommended - a really unforgettable way to spend a Saturday.

Thanks, Beccy, that's wonderful to hear! It was a delight spending the day with you all. Great to get the inside line on the buildings and green roofs we passed, that people in the group had been involved with. Hope you had a super fun evening.

My friend and I attended Rosie's Power Trip on 6 December 2019, and it was fantastic! Despite a cool, damp day, Rosie kept us happy, engaged, and entertained. She is a font of knowledge about aspects of London history and social landscape from the Saxons to the modern day. Rosie is also excellent at finding commonality with the people on her walks, and was able to find personal connections to the subject matter for both my friend and I, getting us very invested. Thank you, Rosie!
