Event Details

The London Ear guided walk explores of the City of London through the medium of sound. The walk blends real-time listening with stories about sounds from the City’s past and insights into how London might sound in the future.  

What to expect
Tour goers will:

  • explore the area between Cannon Street and Liverpool Street Station, with its ancient ways, hidden back alleys and futuristic skyscrapers.
  • take time to really listen to the sounds of the City, including the famous Bow Bells attempting to ring a peal.
  • find out about past sounds that have characterized the area, like the birdsong that triggered a bucolic hallucination and the metallic scraping commemorated in a street name.
  • hear about how London's soundscape is designed and managed, and ways that it is changing.

The walk contains stories, insights and surprises for those whose ear isn’t technically trained alongside the more musically minded. Tour goers will be guided to refine their ear for the City and pay attention to what they usually filter out.

The London Ear is led by Rosie Oliver. A keen London listener, Rosie divides her time between leading Dotmaker walks and producing spoken audio features. Hear Rosie introduce the Sunday version of this walk in this 2 minute podcast.
