Family Punting Cambridge


Take our family tour and enjoy punting alongside the local wildlife, where you might spot swans, ducks and Canada geese. Our informative guides will tailor their tours to suit every age group, and ensure to keep the whole family engaged throughout. We are now offering tickets for our shared tours just for families at the most affordable rate. You will see all of the delights the “Backs” have to offer as you travel one mile through the famous Cambridge university campus. The sights include seven Cambridge colleges and nine bridges, with all of the architectural splendour afforded to you on our punting tours.

We, at the Traditional Punting Company, would recommend families to depart earlier on in the day to receive an even bigger saving. The morning departures are perfect for those early risers, who want to kickstart their visit to Cambridge with the most iconic and top-rated activity the city has to offer. Our morning trips are tranquil and picturesque, allowing for stunning views of the scenery without the crowds. If a shared tour is not what you are looking for, then make sure to check out our private punting page for more information.

Discounted Punting Tours


We will ensure that your family punting tour is a wonderful, fun, unique and safe experience. If you would like a life jacket for your children, then please inform us of the ages of the children in advance, so the life jackets will be given to your party before boarding. We also know that children can get hungry, so you are more than welcome to bring any food or drinks on board to enjoy whilst you are guided up-river. And lastly, we have implemented a text messaging service to notify your family when we are ready for you to board your punt. This allows you to enjoy Jesus Green Park whilst you wait for your message telling you that your boat is ready.

Alongside our Cambridge punting discount tour for families, we also offer a range of other tours for all occasions including hen party punting, corporate event punting, and large group punting. Book online today, for the best rates.

Reviews for Family Discount Punting

We had amazing time punting with the Traditional Punting Company. Our guide was well informed and entertaining but very professional at the same time. I totally recommend them. The had umbrellas ready in case of rain and they gave us blankets to keep us warm.
