5 of us hired a punt for an hour. It was very enjoyable. Once you got away from the boathouse the river was beautiful. Lovely way to spend an afternoon.

A beautiful setting and the best way to relax in oxford. The staff are extremely helpful and even when it’s busy, you are well looked after. If you are in oxford, then this really is a must

We went on the sunniest day of the month, so it was relatively busy but everyone was polite and pleasant. Straightforward boat rental. If you have not punted before they give you some quick instructions on how to control the boat. Overall awesome experience.
