UK: Let’s Go Punting in Cambridge

This Easter weekend, we decided to tick off another UK city from our bucket list, and visit Cambridge! What is there to do in Cambridge you may ask, well punting along the river cam is one of the cities postcard images, and with the sun shining, it seemed like the perfect way to spend an hour of our Saturday afternoon.

There are many companies offering a ride along the river, but we had the pleasure of being offered a shared tour from Let’s Go Punting. We’ll let the pictures do most of the talking in this post, but to quickly cover some of the main sights we saw along our 45 minute guided punt…

As you may imagine, Cambridge is dominated by university buildings, and we got to see 7 of the 31 university colleges along the way. These were: Magdalene, St Johns, Trinity, Trinity Hall, Clare, Kings and Queens.

We also passed through the Bridge of Sighs, The Wren Library, Kings College Chapel, The Mathematical Bridge, New Court St Johns, Clare Bridge and Magdalene Bridge. Each of the sights were explained by our fantastic tour guide, Nathan, who with his expert knowledge and wit gave us a very enjoyable and educational tour.

Let’s Go Punting offer a few different options to tailor the tour to exactly how you want. We took the standard shared tour, which we imagine to actually be the best way to go about things. With having other passengers onboard with us, it allowed us to learn extra facts through their questions to our chauffeur, and we got chatting to the family next to us in the boat. But aside from that, group and hen party bookings are taken, and a variety of picnics can be organised for you to have before or after your tour.

You can check out extra details of the different options here:

A massive thank you to Let’s Go Punting for having us along. We fully recommend them to anyone visiting Cambridge and are looking to tour the city in a relaxing way that to be fair, you can’t do in very many cities at all!

    This looks like such a fun thing to do! The punts look surprisingly comfortable with the squishy seats. The architecture all looks amazing too! One of my high school friends when to Cambridge uni and she loved punting 🙂
