Find us

Traditional Punting Company

It is easy to find us…

To check-in for your punting tour, please come to our meeting point at:

Landing Stage
Thompsons Ln,
Cambridge CB5 8AQ
United Kingdom (UK)
The best way to locate us is by typing in Traditional Punting Company into Google Maps.
Just along the boardwalk from our landing stage, you will find Quayside, a bustling area full of restaurants and bars.
The open space at Quayside provided a wharf area for loading boats in the 16th century, and has remained undeveloped ever since, while the surrounding buildings have gone through many incarnations. In the 1980s the ironworks and brewery sites were redeveloped into large commercial buildings, and since then the area has become a vibrant pocket of life in the city.
If you have any problems finding us on the day please call us on 01223 782306.
Please note there is no parking at our meeting point, so you can use one of the multi-storey car parks around the city or alternatively use the Park and Ride services.

You have one north of the city, another one both east and west of Cambridge and the last two are south east and south west that all link to all the major roads that come into the city. The buses from all of the Park and Rides go to Drummer Street – from here it is a 10 minute walk to our location. The Bus from the Madingley Park and Ride stops on Bridge street, which is just a 5 minute walk from our departure point.
