Punting is a considerable part of Cambridge life and very popular with tourists too. Apart from the fun of the boats themselves, and the method of propulsion, a punting trip offers excellent views of a good number of colleges (Clare, King's, Queen's, Trinity, St John's)....More

We came in quite late with a group of friends celebrating Birthday. Had an amazing time! Thanks too Alex who had some extra patience for us. Especially recommend when it's an early evening as it's not as crowded on the river.
