Punting on the River Cam offers a serene and delightful way to experience the beauty of Cambridge’s historic waterways. Glide along the tranquil river aboard a flat-bottomed punt, propelled by a skilled punter using a long pole.

As you drift past the iconic college buildings and lush riverside gardens, soak in the picturesque scenery and listen to the gentle lapping of the water against the boat. Spot famous landmarks like the Bridge of Sighs and the Wren Library from a unique perspective, all while enjoying the tranquility of the river.

Punting can be arranged through various companies along the banks of the River Cam, with options for guided tours or self-hire. Booking in advance is recommended, especially during peak tourist seasons, but walk-up bookings are often available as well. Whether you’re seeking a romantic outing, a leisurely family activity, or a memorable adventure with friends, punting on the River Cam promises an unforgettable experience in the heart of Cambridge.
