When you think of Britain’s ancient university towns you automatically think of intellectual brilliance, architecture, rowing and, of course, punting. When visiting these beautiful cities there is nothing more evocative and compelling than a punting tour. If you are a resident, a Cambridge punting tour is the perfect gift for visiting friends and family and for tourists it’s an ideal opportunity to gain an overview of the history of this majestic town.
Our punting tours accommodate a total of twelve passengers to a punt and leave from the QUAYSIDE, CB5 8AB. We take in all seven of the riverside colleges, beginning at Trinity College and including the Chapel at Kings, the Bridge of Sighs and the Mathematical Bridge. Tours leave every fifteen to twenty minutes throughout the day and last for approximately forty-five minutes and you will alight, once again, at Quayside.
THE TIME YOU SELECT IS PURELY AN INDICATIVE TIME. YOUR EXACT DEPARTURE TIME WILL BE DICTATED BY YOUR GROUP SIZE AND CHECK IN TIME. DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS WE STRONGLY ADVISE TO COME AND SEE US IN THE MORNING TO BOOK YOUR TIME FOR LATER IN THE DAY
Simply book a flexible ticket(s) and turn up on the day to join other customers on a 12 person chauffeured punt. On weekdays once you book in at our ticket office on quayside you will be given a tour time departing within the hour. On weekends we get extremely busy between 12pm-5pm so during these times you might have to wait 2-3 hours for your departure. So we advise to come and see us in the morning of the day of your tour and book in then, that way you get the choice of departures throughout the day and don’t need to wait, you can simply return 15 minutes before your agreed departure time.
On the day ticket prices are as follows:
Concessions (including OAPs, Students and Children between 12 and 18 years): £14
Children under 12: £12 (Children under the age of one year are free and sit on lap)
