Punting Experience

Traditional Punting Company

For locals and tourists alike, punting has been a quintessential part of Cambridge life since the early 1900s, when the city’s cargo punts were used as pleasure crafts for the first time.
The Traditional Punting Company is an enterprise by a pair of Cambridge locals, who revel in showing the best and most beautiful parts of the city from the most unique perspective – the River Cam.

Despite the increasing number of businesses set up in the area to provide punting services, we have found that we are favoured by customers, who know us for our clean and comfortable punts, our expertise in the local area, and our outstanding customer service.

The Traditional Punting Company is a small independent punting tour operator, licensed by both the Cambridge City Council and the River Cam Conservancy. We are located at Quayside in the heart of Cambridge’s historic centre.

The Traditional Punting Company was begun by Cambridge locals who recognised the need for a punting company that focuses on providing a personal service. The company grew from a single punt, built by the owner’s father for leisure and family days out. From those lazy summer days on the River Cam grew a love for showing others what the stretch of river known as the “college backs” has to offer. Now with a small fleet of wide beam mahogany punts, the Traditional Punting Company has become recognised by tourists and locals as a provider of exceptional punting tours in Cambridge.
