Date Night Punting Tour

A Cambridge date night is only complete when it includes the city’s ultimate activity – punting!

Our pizza and punting tours are the perfect romantic summer evening activity – sophisticated, relaxed and giving you plenty of shared experiences together.

Tuck into some delicious sourdough pizza from Parker’s Tavern with your beau on a date to remember.

You’ll tour the delights of the private College Backs, pristine College gardens and architectural delights such as St John’s New Court, The Bridge of Sighs and King’s College Chapel on the River Cam with your loved one.

This is alfresco exclusive dining at its very best, fun and inspired. You’ll glide on a magical punting tour with the food of lovers (at least in Cambridge) – pizza, and a choice between the sparkling nectars of the ancient city gods – Pierre Bertrand’s award-winning Champagne or Cambridge Calverley’s Brewery & Tap Room IPA!

Whether you’re  in that crazy-in-love feeling at the start of a relationship (and there’s nothing quite like it) or you’ve been growing your love deeper each day and are still head-over-heels in love after years, this punting date is for you!

Date Night Pizza & Punting Tour Information

Date Night Punting includes either a bottle of sparkling Champagne or 4 bottles of IPA. Please choose appropriately when selecting your tour from the drop down. 

Date Night Punting includes pizza from Parker’s Tavern, one of the best restaurants in Cambridge, their amazing sourdough pizzas use locally sourced ingredients. Once booked, we’ll email you to take your food choices. Please see the menu below. 

Our date night tours can be booked throughout the day, although we recommend the evening to maximise the romance. For last minute bookings, please contact our Bookings Team on 01223 322200.

Your date starts with an hour of punting with pizza on a punt dressed and set up ready to go at your booked time. From this sure fire start, where it goes from there is up to you both – The possibilities are endless! 

Boats will be dressed with comfortable plush cushions and cosy blankets. They will be set up with our unique outdoor dining table.

Our boats and our employees will be dressed for the weather on the day. If it’s sunny, your guide will be wearing a waistcoat. Alternatively, at colder times of the year, your guide will wear a professional coat and your boat will be equipped with extra snuggly blankets, umbrellas and hot bots.

Head directly to our check in desk on Jesus Green, just 2 minutes along the boardwalk from the Quayside. Our team will call you for boarding from the moorings once safe social distancing is assured.

What to do if you’re running late? Your date night booking will be held for you for 15 minutes, after this point it wouldn’t be possible to go on the tour as this would mean missing our later bookings. Please call us the moment you know of any delays to your schedule and we’ll try to organise things to accommodate you.
