Time to celebrate this special day on our ‘love punt’ during a romantic, 50 minutes punting tour in Cambridge. This offer is bookable during the 14th, the 15th or the 16th of February. Such, personalised and private chauffeured punting tours are an absolute delight. This Valentine’s Tour is not only a more affordable tour, but also, a nicer and more romantic way to explore the lovely scenery of the historical city of Cambridge.

2. Bouquet of Flowers from ‘The Flower House’

Flowers have always been the ideal gift to surprise a loved one. Since it is nearly a tradition to offer a single red rose or even a lovely bouquet of flowers to the one you love. But, the real question is: ‘where is the best place to get them?’. For this reason, we would like to introduce you to ‘The Flower House‘. A lovely florist, located at Magdalene Street, they not only provide the best fresh combinations of seasonal flowers, but they also provide personalised advice when buying your flowers.

3. Brunch at Cafe Foy

Treat your other half to a delicious morning brunch at Cafe Foy. This picturesque coffee shop not only prepares the tastiest snack and meals. As it also offers an amazing view of the River Cam. Located at Quayside, Cafe Foy has been one of our favourite places to enjoy the simple pleasures of life.

Therefore, we think this is really an idea to consider. So, as mentioned above, this Valentines we are working with them, to offer a 20% off the total bill to all the Traditional Punting Company customers punting during this Friday, the 14th of February. Although this offer can only be redeemed during the day, between 10 am to 5 pm, Cafe Foy’s menu is full of yummy options all day long.

4. Movie Night at Cambridge’s ‘Art Picture House’

Movie nights are another great idea of things to do to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Although, platforms such as Netflix exist and make it easy to relax and enjoy great cinema entertainment in the comforts of our own home. However, the best way to enjoy a night out over Valentine’s is to step out of that comfort zone, and perhaps visit the best place to appreciate screen art around Cambridgeshire. The Cambridge Picture House, a fantastic place not to enjoy some of the greatest cinema, but also extraordinary live performances.

5. Get a Punting Gift Voucher and celebrate later!
