Scholars Punting Cambridge

Established in 2007, Scholars Punting Cambridge is a small collective of four local independent owners licensed by Cambridge City Council.

Together we are devoted to our city's most traditional and ancient pastime, and committed to offering you the most authentic punting in Cambridge.

We craft all of our boats by hand using traditional methods dating back to medieval times, when punting in Cambridge was first introduced. If you visit the city during the winter you'll probably catch us building and maintaining our beautiful boats giving you an insight into the work we put into them.

We offer a variety of tours to suit your needs and budget, whether you need to hire several private tours to accommodate all your guests for a special occasion like a wedding or if you just fancy a single seat on a shared punt for some sight seeing, we have it covered. 

The tours all start and finish at our pontoon which you’ll find outside La Mimosa restaurant on Thompson Lane, Jesus Green, we’re very well sign posted so you wont have trouble finding us. We will glide your boat elegantly and effortlessly along the surface of the river using a pole called a quant. Sit back in our comfy seats and enjoy the scenery whilst your chauffeur entertains you with an informative commentary.

All of our guides are extremely knowledgeable about Cambridge and welcome any questions you have. Whichever tour you choose you're guaranteed to have an extremely relaxing and enjoyable experience, when you book with Scholars Punting Cambridge.
