Afternoon Tea & Punt Tour - Scudamore's Punting Cambridge

Afternoon Tea Punt Tour

Punt and Afternoon Tea

Time for you and time for me,
And time yet for a hundred indecisions,
And for a hundred visions and revisions,
Before the taking of toast and tea

From The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock (T.S. Eliot)

There is little more traditionally English than punting followed by an exclusive afternoon tea. With this in mind, we have developed a perfect package with the The Graduate Hotel to allow you to enjoy both of these 'must do' English activities.

After your inspiring private punt tour of the beautiful College Backs, you will retire to the comfort of the Graduate Hotel's luxurious Twist Bar and Riverside Terrace. Here you will be treated to a mouth-watering selection of sandwiches, scones and sweet treats overlooking the River Cam.

Afternoon Tea Menu

The perfect post-punting afternoon tea from the The Graduate Hotel. Our menu offers the opportunity to partake in classic English sandwiches, fruit scones and sweet treats accompanied by tea or coffee.

The package is available for bookings taking place after 1st July 2021.

The Graduate Hotel - where the afternoon tea takes place - is under a grand refurbishment and it's expected to welcome back guests and lovers of this English tradition starting Summer 2021.

In the meantime, you're welcome to reserve our private tours and we'll gladly suggest the best place for your afternoon tea.
