Fancy an educational day out? Visit Cambridge with the family on a traditional punting trip. Take the 45-minute Scholars Punting Cambridge guided tour to discover 7 of Cambridge University’s most prestigious colleges.

Take the opportunity to learn about the culture, architecture & history of Cambridge, as you sail along the beautiful canals. The whole family is welcome on the tour, including babies. The traditional punting trip is a calm and relaxing experience but if you fancy some extra reassurance, life jackets can be provided for the kids.
