Punting in Cambridge

The River Cam runs through the middle of Cambridge which enables you to take in the beautiful views of the famous Cambridge Colleges and ‘Backs’. You can take in the history of Cambridge whilst relaxing and being punted along, maybe with a glass of bubbles or two. Punting is the ultimate quintessential Cambridge experience.
