Scudamore's Punting Company
Self Hire: Scudamore's Punting Company owns the largest fleet of punts in Cambridge, with some 150 craft available for self-hire along two routes - the College Backs and Grantchester. Also available for hire in the direction of Grantchester are Canadian canoes, kayaks and row-boats.
College Backs Tours: As well as self-hire options, Scudamore's offer a chauffeured punt tour service for the College Backs, which is available daily as a scheduled public tour, weather permitting. The College Backs tour lasts 45 minutes and provides the perfect introduction to Cambridge and its world renowned University. Relax in a comfortable 12 seater chauffeured punt as you pass Cambridge's most famous sights, including King's College Chapel, the Bridge of Sighs, the Mathematical Bridge and the Wren Library. Chauffeured punts come equipped with umbrellas and blankets as standard.
Ghost Tours: A public Punting and Walking Ghost Tour of Cambridge runs every Saturday. This lasts 90 minutes and combines an atmospheric punt tour of the College Backs with a guided walk through Cambridge's haunted lanes. Explore the 'darker' Cambridge of supernatural happenings and macabre tales. Ghost tour times may vary throughout the year, so check the website for details and to purchase tickets.
