Cambridge Punting Reopening

Punting tours are available from March 29th

Punting Returns to Cambridge

Summer 2021 can be enjoyed on the River Cam once again!

2020 was not the easiest, but we do not need to tell you that. Everyone has gone through challenging times throughout these 3 lockdowns, but we just want to say a big thank you to everyone who supported us last year and has already booked with us for this summer. As you can guess, we are extremely excited to announce that we will be reopening on Monday the 29th of March, in line with government guidelines.

Cambridge has not been the same without the punts gliding along the college backs, and we for one have missed it greatly. Punting in Cambridge has been a tradition for many years, so it had to take a pandemic for it to cease. But come the end of March we will once again be guiding our customers along the River Cam, providing you with a relaxing experience that is so desperately needed.

Punting in Cambridge Discount Code

Like last year, all of our safety measures will be in place to adhere to the guidelines set by the government, with our risk assessments, policies and ways of working monitored and updated accordingly. What is new this year is our live availability and dynamic pricing on our website. It has never been so easy to book your punting experience, knowing that you’ve booked for the best price possible and that everything is taken care of before we whisk you away on one of our traditional wooden punts.

As a reopening offer to all of our customers, we are delighted to provide you with a discount code of 20% off all online tours before midday during the Easter Holidays. From the 29th of March to the 11th of April, ‘Earlybird20‘, will give you a saving of 20% off our private and single household shared tours. Just enter this code during the booking process online and see the price drop.
