Welcome to Traditional Punting Company

The Traditional Punting Company is a Cambridge based punting company that operates on the River Cam, running punt tours along the College Backs of the University of Cambridge. The Traditional Punting Company was founded by local Cambridge residents with the mandate to provide a luxury fleet of punts available to the public for guided punting tours.

About Us

The Traditional Punting Company started providing punting in Cambridge in 2005.

We have a fleet of 14 wide beamed punts.

Each punt can accommodate 12 passengers.

Our punting tours are 45 minutes in duration and include an historical narrative from one of our highly trained and engaging chauffeurs.

Our punting tours glide past seven of the Cambridge University Colleges and 8 bridges.

Punting in Cambridge and see the sights including:

Magdelene College
St John’s College
Trinity College
Trinity Hall College
Clare College
King’s College
Queens’ College

The River Cam is being increasingly frequented by punts and Cambridge punting companies, especially during the summer. For a more relaxed tour and punting experience, The Traditional Punting Company offers punt tours to the poet, Rupert Brooke’s, village of Grantchester, which can be arranged using our online booking form.

Our experienced punt chauffeurs have an abundant knowledge of Cambridge and punting, which makes them the perfect tour guides. They guarantee to have you smiling throughout the whole tour, and teach you a thing or two you didn’t know.
