Cambridge Punt Hire

Punt Hire by the Hour

Punt Rental by the Hour

If you're looking to have your very own Cambridge adventure on the river then hiring one of our rental punts is just the thing! Take out a self-hire punt and head along the inspiring College Backs for a sense of grandeur or choose a punt in the direction of rural Grantchester.

For sights that once inspired the poets Lord Tennyson and Xu Zhimo head out along the spectacular College Backs from our Quayside or Mill Lane Punting Stations. Visit the rural haunts of Lord Byron and Rupert Brooke on the upper river and enjoy a more peaceful setting from our Boatyard.
