Rutherford’s Punting in Cambridge

Choose one of our Cambridge punting tours to see the world-famous English Heritage historic park in the heart of the city.

Our chauffeurs will guide you along the stunning College Backs, as you learn Cambridge’s inspiring history and discover the secrets of the city. Their expertise and experience will ensure that you are entertained.

During your tour you’ll soak in sublime University Colleges, exclusive bridges, pristine gardens as well as get a sample of some of the local wildlife – predominantly ducks and swans!

We offer diverse punting choices on the river Cam, including adventurous hen party activities, punting lessons, sushi dining experiences and our popular romantic tour for two with petals and Champagne. We’re happy to plan bespoke tours and events with you so please get in touch to discuss your ideas, suggestions or requests.

Rutherford’s as a company has family heritage directly linked to Ernest Rutherford, a Cambridge Graduate and nuclear physicist, who has shaped our world today through his contribution to industry and education. We’re Cambridge’s newest official punting company and we’re focused entirely on hospitality and your city adventure.
