Rutherford Punting Cambridge


Jesus Green Moorings
Quayside Boardwalk


Tel: 01223 322200

Take a day out in Cambridge and enjoy the beautiful river Cam. See the history and discover the secrets of Cambridge University from the famous Backs. The river Cam and the College Backs are the very heart of Cambridge and were listed by English Heritage, in 1995, as a grade 1 historic park.

Rutherford Punting Cambridge

The city was once the home to Ernest Rutherford, a Cambridge Graduate whose contribution to nuclear physics has shaped our world today. As a business our name and family heritage celebrates Ernest Rutherford and his life long contribution to both industry and education.

We're the top rated punting company in Cambridge on TripAdvisor, holders of the VisitEngland Quality Rose Marque for our punting tours, and were the first punting company to hold an alcohol licence to serve award-winning Champagne on our tours. We offer a world-class experience and knowledge on the history of this amazing city to all who visit. There's no better way to be entertained as you tour this spectacular area than by punt.

Rutherfords Punting Company has over 29 years of combined punting experience alongside a history of providing the best and most enjoyable experiences available on the river Cam. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail, our knowledge and passion for hospitality and events.

Our boats come with unique lumbar support, cushions and blankets in summer and with heated seats and extra snuggly woollen blankets for the colder months. Umbrellas are always on standby to offer shelter from the famed British weather - soring temperatures or rain. 

We offer a range of experiences and events, view our punting experiences page for a full list. Favourites include:
