ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Historic Cambridge Punting Tour - Adult

Current and graduate students take the lead on this unique Cambridge punting tour, taking guests on a historic journey through the city!

Explore eight centuries of university history during this guided punting tour of Cambridge. With great views and fascinating stories, there’s no better way to see the city from the water! 

Punts were originally used to transport cargo across the Fens, and it wasn’t until the early 20th century that punting really took off as a leisure activity. Since then, however, punting on the River Cam has become an iconic Cambridge tradition—enjoyed by students and visitors alike. Tours begin outside King’s College, where you’ll redeem your punting ticket. Once on board, you’ll follow a 50-minute route past eight of the university’s most revered colleges and under nine picturesque bridges. Along the way, you’ll hear tales of tyrannical rulers, student pranksters and intellectual heavyweights, all while enjoying the peaceful atmosphere and scenery of ‘The Backs’. Would that all history lessons were like this one!

The Historic Cambridge Punting Tour is a must-do activity for anyone visiting the university, and Experience Days vouchers make unique birthday or Christmas gifts. If you know a prospective student or history buff, why not take a punt and treat them today!
