A chauffeured punt tour on the College Backs in Cambridge

This unique private punt tour allows couples to enjoy the beautiful Cambridge College Backs snuggled up together in their own luxury chauffeured punt.

Men tend to forget Valentine’s Day, or else leave everything until the last minute and then fall into a panic - often despite subtle reminders from their better halves! Fortunately, help is at hand for the hapless this year in the form of Scudamore Punting Company’s Valentines’ punt tour.

This unique private punt tour allows couples to enjoy the beautiful Cambridge College Backs snuggled up together in their own luxury chauffeured punt. This romantic excursion takes in many of the stunning sights along Cambridge's most celebrated stretch of river, including King's College Chapel, the Wren Library and the Bridge of Sighs.

Punts come equipped with blankets as standard, with hot water bottles slipped on board on chillier days. Although available throughout the day it is anticipated that this tour will be especially popular as an early evening or pre-dinner activity. Tours after dusk are illuminated by the soft glow of Chinese lanterns.

As some couples may not be able to celebrate together on Valentine's Day itself this offer is available from Friday 10th until Saturday 18th February, thus affording the forgetful a chance to make rapid amends! Tours must be pre-booked at least 24 hours in advance and prices start at £65 for a 30 minute tour which includes a complimentary long-stem red rose.
