Cambridge Punting Tours
Cambridge’s ‘college backs’, as they are known, can be explored on a traditional punting tour. Our Cambridge punting tours take you around the ‘backs’ of Cambridge University’s colleges right through the centre of private college grounds dating back over 500 years. It’s by far the best way to explore Cambridge’s eight riverbank colleges if you are on a short time schedule. The Wren Library, which houses original works of William Shakespeare and Sir Isacc Newton’s Principia Mathematica, is one of the sights you will see on your tour along with Nine famous bridges, including the Bridge of Sighs and the Mathematical Bridge, while you relax on your chauffeured punting tour in Cambridge.
If you don’t feel like sharing why not hire your very own private punt? Your expert punt chauffeur will show you 8 colleges and 9 bridges over 50 minutes while providing a detailed historical tour.
Your guide is on hand throughout to answer any questions and give you his sole attention ensuring your satisfaction.
Bring refreshments on board and relax while you glide along the college backs.
