Update Summer 2022: Due to venue rules, we are currently unable to guide inside some areas of the Tower of London site, including the White Tower, the Jewel House and the Chapel of St Peter ad Vincula. This rule is in place until further notice. We are still able to guide in the other areas of the Tower of London site and you will be able to visit guiding-restricted areas independently.

We are a bigger group and it won't let us book a larger vehicle at checkout, can we still book?
If your group needs a larger vehicle than what is displayed as options at checkout please reach out to our team in order to verify availability and pricing with our car provider. Thank you!
Sarah-Jane Kitching was born and brought up in London. She studied at Cambridge University and qualified as a doctor, working in the NHS initially in Gynaecology and latterly as a General Practitioner. Having gained a First in the History and Philosophy of Medicine as part of her medical training, she has now changed career to pursue her long-standing love of history and of London in particular. After two years of intensive study, Sarah-Jane qualified as a London Blue Badge Guide and was awarded Guide of the Year in 2012. She is passionate about the city she lives in with her family and loves to share its fascinating past and present with others.
Imogen Rumbold is a retired solicitor living in London. She is the mother of 3 children, now grown up, but not so long ago that she cannot remember what it is like to be in children’s company! Originally called to the Bar in 1979, she then swapped sides to become a solicitor and partner in the law firm of Lawrence Graham (now Gowlings WLG), and thereafter as a partner in the niche City shipping practice of Lax & Co. Practising as a shipping litigator led to quite a lot of travel, to such places as Russia, Bulgaria and land-locked Switzerland. In 2018, Imogen retired to devote herself to guiding, thus indulging her interests in history without quite abandoning the law. She is a fully qualified tourist guide and holds the coveted Blue Badge, which permits her to lead tours in London, the Cotswolds, Bath and Stonehenge, amongst other sites. She loves sharing London with visitors, the capital city where she has lived and worked for over 40 years. She gets just as much pleasure from guiding children as she does from guiding grown-ups. Come and visit!
