Champagne Punt Tours - Scudamore's Punting Cambridge

Champagne Punt Tour

Champagne Punting in Cambridge

Four be the things I'd been better without:

Love, curiosity, freckles and doubt.

Three be the things I shall never attain:

Envy, content and sufficient champagne.

From Inventory (Dorothy Parker)

It was Napoleon Bonaparte who wisely remarked: "I drink Champagne when I win, to celebrate, and I drink Champagne when I lose, to console myself." So, whatever the occasion, why not celebrate (or seek consolation) in sparkling style with our 'Bubbles on the Backs' river tour?  

With this effervescent package you take to the water in your own private punt for a tour of the College Backs. On-board you'll find a supply of Champagne on ice for your party to enjoy during the trip. You're also welcome to bring along your own nibbles and soft drinks. 

With the punt and chauffeur all yours the tour can be tailored to your individual group's preferences. Although most popular as a pre-dinner activity, the Cambridge Champagne Punting experience will bring a sparkle to any occasion and any time of day.

How many people can each boat hold?

What should I wear?

We suggest that you wear something you don’t mind getting a little wet. Remember to dress appropriately for the weather and boating activity. You need to make sure you have the correct footwear, that is non-slip, stable, can’t fall off easily and offers protection to your toes and heel. Please do not punt in bare feet or wear sandals, flip-flops, slip-on, leather-soled or high-heeled shoes.

What is the start and endpoint of the tour?

You can choose between our two departure points when you book: Mill Lane or Quayside. Your tour will finish at the same place you started from.

What if the weather changes on the day?

All of our tours run as normal unless the river conditions are dangerous and we have to stop operating. As standard, we provide umbrellas and blankets on our boats.

Can I move or make changes to my booking?

Any changes to booking can be made up to 48 hours in advance. If you have any queries regarding your booking please get in touch with our Bookings Team directly at 01223 359750.
