You are very welcome to bring along your own picnic feast for your boating adventures. There's a plethora of local shops to choose between when shopping for quick drinks, nibbles or more of a food feast for your tour or boat hire. We're pleased to list some of our favourites here: 


  • Cambridge Wine Merchants, 31 Bridge Street
  • Fitzbillies, 51 - 52 Trumpington Street
  • Limoncello, 212 Mill Road
  • Marks & Spencers Food Court, 6-11 Sidney Street
  • Sainsbury's, 42-45 Sidney Street

We love our river and hope you will too - please avoid feeding the wildlife and remember to take your litter home with you.

Happy Punting!
