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.


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.


Next walks:


Up the Cally'


Sun 10 September 2017, 1.30-3.30 approx.


Meet outside MacDonalds,302-304 Pentonville Rd, Kings Cross N1 9XD next to King's Cross Station.


It’s an amazingly varied walk on and around the Caledonian Road featuring visual treats like a mural, a clock tower and a famous prison. We’ll learn about the Cally’s history covering political meetings, fashionable markets, bombs, arms caches, espionage and much more. Coming right up to date we’ll find out just why it's such a popular and cheap place to live.


Cost £9 in advance at https://tinyurl.com/y79nospb or on the day.
