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!

(With London Walks unless otherwise stated)


Fashions, Fables & Feasts, Saturday, November 30, 10.45 am

Meet outside Caledonian Road Underground Station

200 years in 2 hours. A memorable and cultural tour de force, reviewing historic sites like the Caledonian Market, Pentonville Prison and the Islington Workhouse, visiting the chic squares of Barnsbury and checking out, metaphorically, the wide-ranging dining and entertainment currently to be had on and close to Upper Street.


Cost £10, pay on the day. (In conjunction with London Walks – Saturday Tour du Jour)
