Philip worked in marketing for many years before qualifying as a guide for the Clerkenwell and Islington area in 2014. In 2018, he became a Westminster Guide. He is particularly interested in sport and leads tours regularly at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium and at Wembley. He is also an enthusiast of all things historical which enables him to guide at St. John’s Gate Museum in Clerkenwell – home of the organisation most famous for starting the St. John’s Ambulance Brigade. Modern sculpture is another interest and he leads several tours around the Capital highlighting some of the great works that can be seen there.

Philip is a born and bred Londoner who adores his home city. He has an individual take on guiding and also likes to talk about more contemporary events and areas of interest and to encourage audience participation. On his Highbury tour – willing customers get to re-enact the denouement of 4 Weddings and a Funeral in the street where it was filmed. His lively tours are not to be missed.
