Punting in Cambridge & COVID-19

Due to COVID-19 we have had to make changes to how we operate our Cambridge Punting Tours. More information about about our Covid-19 safety measures can be found here. Our private punting tours are available and can accommodate groups of multiple households as the rows of seats facing each other are more than one metre apart. Please let us know in the notes section of there are multiple households. Please note each row of 3 people should remain one household and all socail distancing guidelines should be adhered to. Our shared tours are also available with some changes due to social distancing measures. Tickets can be purchased for up to 2, 3, 6 or 9 people. Rows must comprise of one household or bubble. When booking a shared tour there will br other groups on the boat. Our Cambridge Punting tours last for approximately 50 minutes and pass by 7 riverside colleges and famous landmarks including Kings College Chapel, The Bridge of Sighs, The Wren Library and The Mathematical Bridge. During the tour your chauffeur will provide an guided tour including historical facts and anecdotes about Cambridge University and the buildings you are passing. If the screens or masks on the boat impede you hearing the chauffeur in any way we also have a Free Audio Tour which can be downloaded and used during your tour. You are welcome to bring food and drinks on board but we ask you to please take any rubbish with you and dispose of it safely.

  • Specific departure times booked in advance to assist social distancing meaning no queuing.
