Welcome to The London GuideTribe




I'm Philip Nelkon.


I am a born and bred Londoner  and a qualified guide. I've lived and worked in London all my life and I still find it fascinating and exciting. It's such a big city and we all have such busy lives that it's easy to miss the history that is all around us. I aim to reveal that hidden history in an informative and entertaining walk, with a definite emphasis on the entertainment aspect.


It's a great way to get some exercise, meet new people and learn at the same time. Most of the walks I organise are in the Clerkenwell & Islington area although I have just finished a course in Westminster guiding, so watch this space!

Then we relive the romance of 4 Weddings & a Funeral. Next, you get the inside story on Arsenal's old Highbury Stadium, now converted to chic apartments. We end by exploring their new home - the Emirates Stadium (+ a visit to Gillespie Park, Islington's main Nature Reserve).
