Grantchester Punting Trips

The idyllic village of Grantchester is 4 km (2.5 miles) to the south of Cambridge and is a popular retreat from the city. Your guide will punt you along the tranquil upper river, which meanders through fenland, woods and open meadows. Our private punt tours are the most exclusive way to experience the breathtakingly beautiful journey to the beloved home of First World War poet Rupert Brooke.

One-way and return punt tours to Grantchester take approximately 1 hour 15 minutes and 4 hours respectively. Return punting trips include a 1.5 hour break, allowing you ample time for a culinary treat (check out our Grantchester Guide to see the tantalising possibilities).


Additional Information

Your guide will wear a seasonal specific uniform. Our punts can seat up to 12 people and are dressed with cushions and blankets. They come equipped with additional blankets and umbrellas in case the weather changes.

Grantchester tours must be pre-booked and depart from our Boatyard in Granta Place. Online bookings must be made at least 48 hours before the tour takes place. For late bookings or with any special requests, please call our Bookings Team directly on 01223 359750.
