Cambridge Punting Tours:
Our VAQAS-award-winning College Backs Punt Tour offers the ideal introduction to Cambridge’s fascinating history. Hear how the city has evolved from a medieval market town to world-class centre for education, all the while enjoying spectacular views from the river. No one showcases Cambridge quite like Scudamore's, with fully trained tour guides with a passion for history and a natural talent for sharing it with others. Relax for three quarters of an hour in a comfortable 12 seater punt as you pass Cambridge's most famous sights, including King's College Chapel, the Bridge of Sighs, the Mathematical Bridge and the Wren Library.
We also offer the opportunity to have a go at punting yourself. Hire a punt to head along the famous College Backs from our Quayside Punting Station. Punts can be rented for as short as an hour or as long as the day's opening hours.
Scudamore's run exclusive punt tours and activities that are scheduled during celebratory calendar events, including tours for Valentines Day, Easter, May Week, Halloween and Christmas. Visit the website for full details and celebrate the season, Cambridge style.
