Punting Picnics in Cambridge
Punting has returned to Cambridge and so has our famous picnic boxes. For this season, our classic Harriets Afternoon tea picnic box is still available due to popular demand. However, we’ve got some exciting news to share with you!
New Picnic Boxes!
During the lockdowns earlier on in the year, we worked hard to ensure that we can provide all of ours customer with the best and most unique punting experience in Cambridge. Part of our efforts were to partner up with small local businesses to increase what we can offer on our punting tours. This year we have teamed up with another local business, All On Boards, to brighten up our picnic offers for this season.
So for this summer we are offering two new delicious picnic boxes: a Brunch style box & a Deli Style Grazing box. We couldn’t think of a better addition to complete our range of available picnics. If this sounds enticing to you, or a picnic punt is something that has crossed your mind, then check out the information below about the picnic punting tours we have on offer in 2021.
Harriets Afternoon Cream Tea
Our Harriets picnic box has been a favourite for over a year now, so we couldn’t be prouder to announce that it is back for this season.
This luxury picnic comes individually boxed for each person. These boxes are perfect to takeaway with you if you don’t manage to eat all of its contents during the punting tour. Each box includes a soft drink – Bottlegreen elderflower & pomegranate, a delicious freshly baked scone, accompanied by clotted cream and strawberry jam, four finger sandwiches and three assorted patisseries. Harriets are incredible for accommodating dietary requirements and allergies, so if you are wondering whether a picnic punting tour is right thing to do if you suffer from a food intolerance or allergy then think again. All you need to do is add the different requirements for the entire group in the field provided when booking online. Your picnic box will be prepared exactly to your needs and will be waiting for you on your private punting tour.
The total price per person for this picnic box is only £13.
Brunch Picnic Box
Brunch is always a great idea!!! What about brunching onboard a relaxing punting tour, through Cambridge’s most iconic and scenic views?
We love this addition, especially for a morning departure, and it seems that our customers are loving it too, especially to kickstart a visit to Cambridge. This brunch picnic option comes in a sharing style box, which is then divided amongst the group. The size of the box depends on the amount of people that are booking this option. Each box includes an array of freshly baked croissants, pain au chocolates and waffles, which are paired with miniature jars of strawberry jam and Nutella, as well as fresh fruits and natural yoghurt pots topped with crunchy granola and fruit. The minimum number of people required to order this box is 4 and the total price per person is only £12.5.
Deli Style Grazing Box
Last but not least is our mouth-watering Deli Style Grazing box. This grazing box is the perfect accompaniment to a relaxing punt tour on a sun-soaked afternoon or evening. Again this picnic comes in a sharing box and contains a combination of 3 locally sourced cheeses, crackers and a range of high-quality charcuterie. This is all topped up with delicious nuts, dried fruits, grapes and a homemade fig chutney to die for. If you are a veggie then don’t fret as All On Boards will include other foods like hummus and falafel instead of the charcuterie to make sure you don’t miss out. This picnic option is for a minimum of 2 people and is either priced at £35 for two or £14 per person when the group size is 4 or more.
