Scudamore's Punting Company are Cambridge's oldest and most revered punting company, and the originators of pleasure punting as a leisure activity in Cambridge. Since their foundation circa 1903, they have hired boats and offered tours to both residents and visitors alike. Punting has over recent years become a mainstream activity so choose Scudamore's to ensure the authentic punting experience.

Cambridge Punting Tours:

Our award-winning College Backs Punt Tour offers the ideal introduction to Cambridge’s fascinating history.

No one showcases Cambridge quite like Scudamore's, with fully trained tour guides with a passion for history and a natural talent for sharing it with others. Relax for three quarters of an hour in a comfortable 12 seater 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.
