Punting on the River Cam

Punts were introduced to Cambridge as pleasure craft in Edwardian times. One of the pioneers of punt hire on the River Cam was F. Scudamore, who founded his business in1910, quickly establishing punting as Cambridge’s favourite pastime. Today, Scudamore’s Punting Company owns the world’s largest fleet of punts, with nearly 150 craft available for hire along two routes.
You can hire a punt yourself (tips on technique will happily be provided) or take a Chauffeured Tour – the ideal introduction to Cambridge. 
Alternatively, why not try an evening Champagne Tour, or discover the darker side of Cambridge on a Punting and Walking Ghost Tour!
Other tours are available – see the Scudamore’s website for details.
