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!

We start by walking around Islington's largest open space - Highbury Fields and appreciating the grandeur and history of its beautiful Georgian houses. 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).

Highbury to the Emirates Stadium

Meet outside Highbury & Islington Station

View the beautiful Georgian architecture in historical Highbury, an affluent district of North London since Mediaeval times and Arsenal’s home for over 90 years. Visit the well preserved old ground, now a chic housing estate. Walk the same streets as Colin Firth in Fever Pitch and relive the climax of the film - perhaps, the most dramatic football match of all time. The tour ends at their new home where we find out about the buildings that were replaced by the Stadium, take in the iconic sights of the Emirates and review the statues of the club’s heroes including Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry.
