Chauffeured Punting In Oxford

Available from Apr 1

Chauffeured Punting In Oxford

star-5
Sit back, relax, and enjoy this enchanting Oxford punting trip on Oxford’s River Cherwell. Chauffeured punting is the easiest way for you to enjoy this classic Oxford University experience. The lapping of the water under the boat, the daffy ducks gliding alongside looking for treats, the water-colour views framed at each turn by arcades of trees, the play of light on the water, the wind in the willows… Your chauffeur for this captivating cruise is an expert punter. Having learnt while a student here at Jesus College, he spent many a sunny day on the river with friends instead of in the library studying. So come along, bring a drink (preferably champagne or Pimms) and bask in the spellbinding scenery of the river.
