The majestic ‘college backs’ are awash with incredible architecture and steeped in history making them the perfect backdrop for a romantic date. Our romantic punting tours for 2 are available throughout the day although we suggest booking an evening slot for the best punting experience. The river is much quieter in the evenings making it the perfect time to enjoy a romantic punting experience with the one you love.

Tours last approximately 50 minutes and are return trips along the college backs.

Our delicious Deli Style picnic for two can be added to your booking alongside a chilled bottle of champagne or prosecco (please note we need at least 48 hours’ notice for these options).

Alternatively, you are very welcome to bring food & drinks on board and there are a number of Cafes and Restaurants on the Quayside where refreshments can be picked up before boarding.

Punting Proposals

Looking for something a little different for your proposal? Look no further: A chauffeured punting experience is the perfect option. We can arrange bouquets of Red Roses, Champagne, A delicious deli-style grazing board picnic, boxed chocolates or fresh cakes….

Along the college backs there is no shortage of impressive backdrops for your romantic marriage proposal. There’s the iconic Kings College Chapel, the formidable Wren Library, New Court St Johns which and the intricate Bridge of Sighs. What’s more it’s rumoured if you kiss under the Bridge of Sighs you will be blessed with everlasting love – perfect.

It was an amazing experience. My niece and myself arrived at Cambridge yesterday and decided to go punting as the weather was amazing. You can buy tickets to the punting tour next to the train station which is very convenient. Big thanks to Cameron (hope that's his name😄) who guided the punting tour and told great stories about universities! we had a great time !

We had a great experience on the shared punting trip with let’s go punting. We purchased the tickets from a friendly staff member. Noah had great customer service skills and was very helpful. James was an excellent (driver?) dodging between many boats on the water and giving us so many interesting facts on the way. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and would definitely recommend!
