Punts passing King's and Queens' college

Join us for a punt tour of the famous Cambridge colleges

Sit back, relax, take in the historic surroundings and enjoy the anecdotes from professional chauffeurs as you cover the ¾ mile stretch of the River Cam from Jesus Green to Silver Street (and back again).

We have a range of pricing options for our shared punt tours, with special prices for children and students – making it a great activity for the whole family. If riding in a group sounds too busy for you, we also have the option of booking a private river tour.

***Please note that due to current social distancing advice and Coronavirus restrictions, punt tours will be running at a limited capacity, starting from Saturday 4th July***

Tickets are now available for purchase and will be valid from the date when tours are running again. Please see notes regarding minimum group prices during the week and at weekends.***

Here’s the Deal:

  • Approx 45 minutes to 1 hour boat trip along the river Cam in a traditional wooden punt (with added precautions for Covid-19)
  • 8 famous Cambridge University colleges (along the part of the river known as ‘The Backs’), including Magdalene, St John’s, Trinity, King’s and Queens’ colleges
  • 9 famous (and some not so famous) bridges along the route, such as the Bridge of Sighs and the Mathematical (wooden) bridge
  • An excellent punt chauffeur to do all of the hard work (the punting) and tell you about the history, student life, architecture and funny anecdotes as you float along the river. They are excellent, just look at the reviews
