Punting: Along The Backs

Share Published on March 14, 2019

End your day of adventures with a relaxing guided punt along the enchanting College Backs — one of the most romantic ways to experience the spirit of Cambridge. Gliding along the River Cam, you will catch glimpses of college gardens and intricate bridges, as well as views of King’s College Chapel, New Court St. John’s and The Bridge of Sighs.

Tours last just under an hour and cover the full length of the College Backs. Sit back and relax as your chauffeur not only punts you along the waterway, but provides an informative commentary on riverside colleges, famous alumni and Cambridge’s rich history.

Speak to the Concierge about preferred rates for guests.
