Take a day out punting in Cambridge and enjoy the beautiful sights on the serene river Cam. See the history and discover the secrets of Cambridge University from the famous Backs on a punt tour.

The river Cam and the College Backs are the very heart of Cambridge and were listed by English Heritage, in 1995, as a grade 1 historic park. The best way to see this outstanding area of beauty is on Cambridge punting experience.

The city was once the home to the famous Ernest Rutherford, a Cambridge Graduate whose contribution to nuclear physics has shaped our world today. As a business our name and family heritage celebrates Ernest Rutherford and his life long contribution to both industry and education.

We’re a top rated punting company in Cambridge on TripAdvisor, holders of the VisitEngland Quality Rose Marque for our punting tours, and we were the first punting company to hold an alcohol licence to serve award-winning Champagne on our tours. Here at Rutherford Punting Cambridge, we offer a world-class experience and knowledge on the history of this amazing city to all who visit. There’s no better way to be entertained as you tour this spectacular area than by punt.

Rutherfords Punting Cambridge leads the way on punting experiences with a history of providing the best and most enjoyable escapades available on the river Cam. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail, our knowledge and passion for hospitality and events.
