Scudamore's Punting Cambridge

Pleasure Punting Professionals in Cambridge

Jack Scudamore was at the very heart of the pleasure-punting movement of the early 20th Century.
Pleasure punting proved to be incredibly popular with the Cambridge University pupils with many notable names regularly taking to the water whether it be for relaxation or frolics! The activity became so essential when spending time at Cambridge that you’d be hard pressed to find a student, famous or otherwise, that hadn’t taken a Scudamore’s punt along the River Cam or River Granta.
Throughout our history, Scudamore’s Punting Company has remained a local business and stayed close to its Cambridge roots. Today, Scudamore’s is by far the UK’s oldest punting company and is still based in the very centre of Cambridge.
We offer both do-it-yourself boat hire and chauffeured punting tours and are always happy to tailor services to special requests. Check out our exclusive family day out deals on our website.
