Welcome to The London GuideTribe

 

Hi

 

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.

 

FORTHCOMING WALKS

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

'Up the Cally'

 

Sunday 22 January 2023, 2.30-4.30 approx.

 

Meet at taxi rank – west side, King's Cross Station.

 

An amazingly varied walk on and around the Caledonian Road featuring visual treats like a mural, a clock tower and a famous Gothic-style prison. We learn about political meetings, fashionable markets, bombs, arms caches & espionage, it’s larger than life characters like Fishy Bill, & Prince Monolulu and how it got its name. Coming right up to date we’ll find out just why it’s such a popular and cheap place to live.
