Forget the hype: London is a rubbish city! Rejoice in the junk and wonder at the waste on this winding trail of muck and trash.

About this event

About this event

On this guided walk from the Docklands to Greenwich we'll pass historic dumps and landfills and hear the stories of castaway communities. We'll ponder the sounds and smells of the city's waste, past and present, and marvel at its transformation.

A Rubbish Trip offers an alternative perspective on this part of London by linking together features of the landscape through the theme of rubbish. Tour goers will:

  • find out about Londons rubbish - past, present and future - the characters involved in collecting it, and the marvellous methods of transforming it;
  • explore a seldom-visited part of the capital - the Isle of Dogs - taking in such gems as Millwall Dock, Mudchute Park & Farm, Island Gardens with its spectacular views of the Royal Naval College, and the Greenwich Foot Tunnel;
  • learn about the history of the area;
  • end the tour by the river in Greenwich, with its rich collection of historic rubbish.

A Rubbish Trip is led by founder of Dotmaker Tours, Rosie Oliver. Rosie has a background as an environmental lawyer.

Listen to Rosie introduce A Rubbish Trip in this 3 minute podcast.

The ticket price includes a rubbish cast list and a scrap of junk food.

Suitable for adults and young people aged 16 and over. It crosses a park that can be muddy, and goes up and down steps. Wear boots or sturdy shoes.
