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:-


Islington between the Wars


Saturday 1 July 11.30am


Meet at Angel Underground Station.


Start at the Angel, walk in and around Upper Street and through the ‘hole in the wall’ and be transported back into another era when life was gruelling. Without the NHS, where did the poor go for treatment? Where could they get free milk? What were their shops like? How did you place a bet when betting was illegal? Yes, it was hard, but there were close communities and great fun to be had at the weekend. Local experts Philip Nelkon and Janet Foster guide you around a very different Islington.


Cost £10. Book at https://tinyurl.com/y8xyjhc6 or pay on the day.
