About Rob


I’m Rob Walters and I live in central Oxford where I am a qualified guide and a writer, and also on the edge of Stow-on-the-Wold where I keep chickens and grow stuff. My main career was in telecommunications and that’s where I began writing books and presenting. Nowadays most of my writing centres on Oxford the city, its university and colleges, although I have also wandered gaily off into fiction, biography and travel.


I give talks in person or over Zoom on a variety of topics, often based on my writing or guiding: my most popular ones just now are based on the story of the Oxford English Dictionary and on the Pubs of Oxford. I make videos and have my own YouTube channel called Rob’s Oxford so you can sample my approach to presentation if you wish - you can get there through my website  homepage at www.robsbookshop.com.


About my talks
Talks are normally given with PowerPoint so I will need a projector and screen. I can also deliver all talks via Zoom. Some talks can be delivered ‘stand alone’. Please enquire.


Fee details
Fee for Zoom delivery is £50.

If travelling then fee is £65 plus travelling expenses at 35p per mile.
