Philip

Londoner born and bred. National Scrabble Champion four times (see his entry in the Guinness Book of Records) – ergo never at a loss for words. Professionally qualified Islington and Clerkenwell Guide. (The professional guiding qualification for Westminster is in the pipeline.) Guides at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, Lords Cricket Ground and St. John’s Gate Museum in Clerkenwell. Made his debut with London Walks with his Highbury – Grand Houses & Grander Stadiums walk. And here’s the Meet Your Guide interview David did with Philip for the London Walks podcast.
