Punting in Cambridge
You can rent punts at several places, notably at Silver Street Bridge–Mill Lane, at Magdalene Bridge, and from outside the Rat and Parrot pub on Thompson's Lane on Jesus Green. Hourly rental costs £15 to £20. Chauffeured punting, usually by a Cambridge student, is also popular. It costs around £12 per person.
Scudamore's Punting Co.. This company rents chauffeured and self-drive punts. It also offers various special tours—ranging from an afternoon tea tour to a bat safari—starting at around £16 per person. Private tours can also be booked; high-stakes romantics can even arrange a "Proposal Tour," which includes champange and roses if your beloved says yes.
