Cream Tea Punt Tour

Cream Tea Punt Tour

Punt and Cream Tea

The Fitzwilliam Museum is one of the finest small museums in Europe, housing world-class collections of works of art and antiquities. It should be part of any visitor's itinerary and is located on Trumpington Street, just a few minutes' walk from our Mill Lane Punting Station. 

As an added incentive to visit the Fitzwilliam we have got together with the Museum's Courtyard Café to offer you a traditional treat. Our Punt Tour & Cream Tea online package combines a place on our award-winning Shared College Backs punt tour followed by a delicious cream tea at the Café. The Fitzwilliam traditional cream tea comprises a pot of fine leaf tea (supplemented by a glass of milk for under-12s) served with handmade scones, conserve and clotted cream.
