May Ball Fireworks Private Punting Tour
Both Trinity and St John’s May Balls are open only to the students and fellows of Cambridge University. So being exclusive events, special night-time tours are held for these two dates to allow people to watch the May Ball Fireworks from the River Cam. The river usually becomes gridlocked for these evenings during ‘May Week’ and the atmosphere is definitely one to remember. Therefore, booking your own private tour for these events ensures that you have the space and the option to invite as many or as few friends along. Being a part of these evening punting tours allows you to be a part of the prestigious celebrations.
Sit back in comfort and enjoy the famous architecture that lines the River Cam as you’re guided downstream towards either Trinity or St Johns College. Our chauffeurs will regale you with tales and stories of historic and scholarly importance from the origins of Cambridge University. Once in position you will have the beast seats in the house to view the extraordinary show that will erupt before your eyes; all in the luxury of your own punt. Remember you are more than welcome to bring your own food and drink along to make the trip that extra bit special. However, if you would like to add a picnic to your tour please do not hesitate to contact us.
The Cambridge May Balls have been attended by some of the most prestigious people throughout history including Nobel prize winners, princes, scientists, poets and historians to mention but a few. You can add your name to the list of people watching these spectacular fireworks displays at such lavish and exclusive events.
