Travel in Style
Punts are probably the most famous modes of transportation (and tourism) Cambridge has to offer. A rich tradition spanning back to the city’s founding, a trip in these gondola-like boats are a staple to any Cambridge visit.

Punting in Cambridge is almost exclusively a leisure activity, though it has its roots in the more practical application of fishing in shallow waters. It can sometimes be difficult for beginners to learn how to navigate when punting for the first time, but once you get the hang of it you are sure to enjoy the soothing rhythm that comes with moving down the river.
When you want to experience Cambridge in a quiet, tranquil way, spend the evening floating by the Cambridge Backs in a self-hired punt, or take advantage of the professional College Back Tour offered by Scudamore’s Punting Company and learn a little more about the rich history of Cambridge University.
Punting is the ideal way to see the Cambridge University sites, so don’t miss out on this unforgettable Cambridge experience.
