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:-


'Elizabethan Islington


Sat 3 June 2017, 11:30 – 1:00


Meet outside Finsbury Library, 245 Saint John Street, London, EC1V 4NB


This year's City Read book is Prophecy by S J Parris - a gripping Elizabethan thriller set in London 1583. We’ll find out what life was like in Clerkenwell when Good Queen Bess was on the throne and visit a number of relevant locations, many of whose buildings, amazingly, still exist today. Join us to discover the parishes, plays and murderous plots of Elizabethan Islington
