Attraction details
Owner description: Founded in the early 1900s, we are Cambridge's oldest and friendliest punting company. We founded pleasure punting in Cambridge and have hired boats along the famous College Backs and on the scenic route towards Grantchester village for over 100 years. As the first company in Cambridge to offer chauffeured tours of the College Backs, our VisitEngland award-winning services include both our boat hire and our College Backs Tour. Discover how the city has evolved from medieval market town to world-class centre for education whilst enjoying spectacular views from the river - the ideal introduction to the city's inspiring history.

Having been accosted and upset by a different punting company (who weren't even offering what we wanted) it was such a relief to be met by a Scudamore's representative, he was kind and helpful. We did a self-hire punt which was very reasonably priced and no money exchanged hands until after we had returned (no pricey deposit). They were really helpful both on leaving but also if they saw us struggling on the river as they passed us on their own tours. Would recommend these above all others.

Spent a sunny but chilly morning on a punting tour with Scudamore’s. Josh was our guide and it was great to learn about the history of the buildings and places we saw from the Cam. Lots of colourful stories which made it interesting. It felt very relaxing and thanks to the blankets quite comfortable despite the cold. Would recommend.
