Discover the Delight of Punting in Cambridge with the Cambridge Punt Company

Punting In Cambridge

Welcome to Cambridge, a city steeped in history, renowned for its prestigious university, stunning architecture, and serene River Cam. One of the most quintessentially Cambridge experiences is punting – a leisurely boat ride that offers a unique perspective on this beautiful city. Whether you’re a visitor or a local, punting provides a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Join us as we explore the charm of punting with the Cambridge Punt Company.

What is Punting?

Punting involves propelling a flat-bottomed boat, called a punt, using a long pole. The punter stands on a platform at the rear of the boat, pushing against the riverbed to move the punt forward. This traditional method of river transport dates back to the 19th century and remains a beloved pastime in Cambridge.
