East Anglia Places




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 tours, ranging from a Ghost Tour to a Punt & Cream Tea Tour, for about £18.50 per person. Private tours can be booked for the same price, but there's quite a hefty minimum charge. Granta Place, Mill La., Cambridge, CB2 1RS. 01223/359750. www.scudamores.com.
