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 14 May 2017, 1.30-3.30 approx.


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


We'll be walking up the Caledonian Road on an amazingly varied walk including visual treats like murals and clock towers. Learning about its history covering political meetings, fashionable markets and how it got its name. Then coming right up to date in finding out why it's such a popular place to live.


Cost £9 in advance at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/up-the-cally-tickets-33432608833 or on the day.
