Ivor Grosvenor Guest, 2nd Viscount Wimborne (21 February 1903 – 7 January 1967), was a British politician.


Wimborne was the son of Ivor Guest, 1st Viscount Wimborne, and his wife the Hon. Alice Katherine Sibell, daughter of Robert Grosvenor, 2nd Baron Ebury. He was educated at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge, and also served with the Royal Tank Corps (TA), achieving the rank of lieutenant. From 1935 to 1939 he was National Member of Parliament (MP) for Brecon and Radnor. The latter year he succeeded his father in the viscountcy and entered the House of Lords.[1][2]

Lord Wimborne married Lady Mabel Edith, daughter of Giles Fox-Strangways, 6th Earl of Ilchester, in 1938. William Walton composed "Set me as a seal upon thine heart" for the wedding.[3]

He died in January 1967, aged 63, and was succeeded in his title by his son Ivor Fox-Strangways Guest.
