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 with the occasional one in Wesminster, the City and my local area of Southgate.



(All walks are with London Walks (booking and further details at www.walks.com), unless otherwise stated, and will last approx. 2 hours)

London- a Heart of Stone


Sunday 22 October, 2.30 pm, meet outside Temple Station


A feast of stunning art and architecture. Whilst appreciating some amazing public sculpture and a number of exquisite buildings, we’ll be learning about sites in the Fleet Street, St. Paul’s and  Smithfield areas instrumental to the development of London as a commercial colossus. These include a Mediaeval Church, an 800-year-old market and an old trade entrance to London, rescued from the obscurity of a garden in Hertfordshire.  Among the trimmings: a picturesque astrological clock with the face of the greatest ever Englishman, a memorial to ‘Everyday Heroes’ and the only statue of Henry VIII in London


You can also pay on the day - cost £15, concessions £10, u-16's £5
