5 ideas for last-minute plans for Father’s day 2022

Father’s day is on the 19th of June, 2022. Not as heavily publicised as Mother’s day this may have passed you by. Don’t fret Let’s Go Punting is here with 5 fab last-minute gift ideas you still have time to sort before Fathers Day this Sunday.


We want to thank our dads, granddads and the father figures in our lives the proper way. And realistically speaking, it is hard to come up with grand ideas. Especially, if you are busy with work and day-to-day life. But worry not, we have you covered with some cool ideas for the perfect gift for all the amazing dads out there.

  1. Punting with the family, dad’s edition:


We definitely recommend chauffeured punting for celebrating father’s day.  Punting is a beautiful activity that shows all the hidden gems in Cambridge that you would not otherwise see on foot. More importantly, Dads love cool trivia and facts. Hence, our guided punting tours with a bit of history and interesting trivia about all the colleges and bridges will definitely blow him away.

If this hasn’t sold you already, our chauffeured punting tours will allow dad to sit back and relax and not have to punt themselves. Treat your dads to a well-earned rest.


You can also enjoy afternoon tea whilst on the punting tour with our locally sourced delicious picnics from our supplier, All on Boards.


  1. Buy Papa a Beer:


As the weather is getting warmer and it is starting to feel like summer, it only makes sense to enjoy a cold beer in an outdoor pub.

This might not be a monumental idea. However, sharing a cold beer with your dad always feels special. After all, it’s all about these little moments.


Cambridge has lots of nice pubs with amazing beer gardens all around the city. We recommend the Mill Pub and Cambridge Blue.


The Cambridge Blue Pub is located on Mill Road. In addition to its spacious outdoor garden, it has a wide selection of beers to choose from.


The Mill Pub is definitely one of the best pubs in Cambridge for a father’s day out. The outdoor seating area is overlooking the river.


Better yet, you can go on a pub crawl with your dad and discover all the cool pubs Cambridge has on offer.

  1. Take him out for Dinner


We know food is the simplest way to show appreciation for someone. It always feels cosy to share a meal together. Moreover, father’s day is on a Sunday. Nothing feels more family-oriented that sharing a Sunday roast together.  That’s why we recommend taking your dad for lunch. Especially because many restaurants have amazing offers and discounts for father’s day.


You can treat your dad to a Sunday roast at The Pint Shop with their Sunday roast fit for a king.


If your dad is not a big fan of Sunday roasts or not particularly feeling them for father’s day, Cambridge has a big selection of international cuisines that taste so heavenly good.


  1. Walking tour


If your dad is into history and sightseeing, then you should take them on a walking tour around Cambridge. Stride offers a variety of walking tours around Cambridge. The walking tours are led by blue badge guides. They also feature the world-famous Cambridge University including the city’s most popular sights, such as Market Square, the Corpus Clock, and Kings College Chapel, to name a few.


  1. Go Bowling


You can book your pops in for a bowling game or two in Tenpin in Cambridge leisure park. Perhaps your dad likes something a bit more fun, why not go bowling or karaoke? This may not be so traditional. Nonetheless, it will certainly be a father’s day to remember.


We look forward to welcoming you and your dearest father figures for a punting trip with us on Fathers Day this Sunday. Book here to grab your tickets.
