Cambridge Punting

Is there anything more relaxing and quintessentially British than punting in Cambridge? Whether it’s a romantic trip for two, a family day out or a way to celebrate a special occasion like a birthday or hen party, there’s no better way to see than city than from the water. This traditional activity takes you down the River Cam where you’ll see all the historic and picturesque sights that this famous city has to offer such as Kings College Chapel, The Bridge of Sighs, The Mathematical Bridge and The Wren Library.

The river runs through the centre of the city, giving you a unique perspective versus exploring by foot. Some punting experiences let you do the paddling yourself and others are led by a professional chauffeur who’ll give you detailed information about the area, sharing fun facts and showing you points of interest. Some even let you let you bring your own food and drink on board to make things that bit more special.
