Halloween Punt and Hunt

  • This Halloween scavenger hunt and activity booklet can only be purchased alongside a Shared or Private Cambridge Punting tour.

  • The hunt & activity booklets are available as an Add-On once you have selected your punting tour. Please make sure that you are booking between the 21st and 31st of October for this Halloween add-on to appear. Select the number of booklets you would like to purchase – we do recommend that each child receives one so they can all complete the activities and receive their prize together.

  • Your pack will be handed to you at the start of your punting experience.

  • The questions during your punting experience will be used to form your final code for your scarily sweet surprise. The city part of the booklet is an additional Halloween hunt to carry on the fun. This part of experience will take you roughly an hour and will guide you around the iconic centre of Cambridge, so why not take a few stops along your way for a bite to eat or drink to make a full day of it.

  • The hunt & activity book is for those aged between 4 and 11, with the older kids being able to complete the hunt by themselves but for those young monsters, parents will need to help point them in the right direction. This Halloween activity is children friendly with only fun and silly scares, so it is perfect for the whole family.

Reviews for Halloween Punt and Hunt

Thanks Traditional Punting Company, my kids loved the halloween booklet. They had a great time completing the activies along the river and the tour guide was great with them. We also completed the city centre scavenger hunt which took us to all of the spooky parts of Cambridge, finding out about its past. Great for all ages, and included some child-friendly scares. Their favourite part was of course the prize!!!


I took my children with their friends on this Halloween package, it was a great way to enterain them for a few hours. The booklet was a fantastic idea and they loved taking it home as a souvenir. We even made the cookies to carry on the Halloween fun. I would recommend to anyone visiting Cambridge whose children like Halloween and having a giggle together whilst finding the answers around the city.
