Additional Information

Shared punt tours along the Backs can be taken daily from 09:00, departing every 15-30 minutes. 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.

Your e-ticket can be redeemed at either our Mill Lane or Quayside Punting Stations and is easy to use: just present our staff with a print-out or show it to us on your mobile device and we will redeem it for reserved places on the next available tour. Availability is usually best on weekdays and weekend mornings.

On weekend and bank holiday afternoons tours are sometimes fully subscribed for up to 2 hours in advance. Where this occurs, we reserve you places on a tour for later in the day, leaving you free to explore Cambridge. We recommend that you then return to us 5 - 10 minutes before your scheduled tour time.

Children under 16 need to be accompanied by an adult.

Once purchased, e-tickets are non-refundable.
