Meet The Guide: Brummy Boy!

Published by Thames Rockets 3455 days ago

Our witty guides are an integral part of the London RIB experience, and they do a great job entertaining each and every single thrill-seeker that climbs aboard our boats. But lately one of our guides has been standing out, and attracting much attention on our TripAdvisor page. And that guide is our dear Brummy Boy!

Brummy Boy, aka James Clay, has long been a treasured member of the London RIB Voyages team, but he must've stepped his anecdotes up a notch lately because we've noticed much acclaim for his tours...

Here are a few of our favourite reviews featuring Brummy Boy.

Shejo said: 'Booked this for my grandson's 10th birthday, who is James Bond mad. It was absolutely fabulous, should have seen his face when the Bond music came on. James's commentary was great, funny and informative and Ian's driving was well, amazing.'

James Clay is also a trained actor, having starred in productions such as Merchant of Venice, All My Sons and Lord of the Flies. He has also featured in a fair few television programmes, look out for him in Casualty, Midsummer Murders, Doctors and Whitechapel. And if you'd like to take a look at it's movie star debut you can catch him starring as Jeremy Spenser in My Week With Marilyn! So a big thank you to you, James. May the hilarity on board continue, and may your anecdotes reach all the ears of London!
