Finding Us is Easy

To check-in for your punting tour, please come to our meeting point at:

Landing Stage
Thompsons Ln,
Cambridge CB5 8AG
United Kingdom (UK)
Phone: 01223 782306
Email: info@traditionalpuntingcompany.com

Just along the boardwalk from our landing stage, you will find Quayside, a bustling area full of restaurants and bars.

The open space at Quayside provided a wharf area for loading boats in the 16th century, and has remained undeveloped ever since, while the surrounding buildings have gone through many incarnations. In the 1980s the ironworks and brewery sites were redeveloped into large commercial buildings, and since then the area has become a vibrant pocket of life in the city.

If you have any problems finding us on the day please call us on 01223 782306.

Please note there is no parking at our meeting point, so you can use one of the multi-storey car parks around the city or alternatively use the Park and Ride services.

If you are arriving by car to go Punting in Cambridge:

Park and Ride

Park and Ride services (excluding Milton Road) are currently operating but the time table is likely to be reduced, see here for current COVID-19 information. The site best for you will depend on where you are coming from. The buses from the Park and Rides around the city all go to Drummer Street, from here it is a 10 minute walk to our location. The Bus from the Madingley Park and Ride stops on Bridge street, which is just a 5 minute walk from our departure point. Information on all of the Park and Ride sites can be found here: Park and Ride – Cambridge.

City Centre Parking

There are a number of multi story car parks in the city Centre, our closest one is Park Street which is a short 5 minute walk away.

Please note that traffic can be extremely heavy in Cambridge City Centre, especially at the weekends, so please expect queues when entering Car Parks. So leave plenty of time to complete your journey to avoid arriving late for your departure time.

There are also two Pay and Display bays on Pound Hill and Chesterton Lane which are free after 5pm.

From the train station take any bus into the city Centre. From the main city Centre bus terminal (Drummer St) our punt station is a 10 minute walk away.
