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!
