It would be a shame to visit Cambridge without experiencing the wonders of punting - either trying your hand at mastering the art of punting yourself or sitting back and enjoying a guided, chauffeured trip along the historic and beautiful Cambridge Backs.
Punting as a leisure activity was introduced to Cambridge in Edwardian times and has become one of Cambridge's favourite pastimes. One of the pioneers of punt hire on the River Cam was Jack Scudamore, who founded his business in the early 1900's. Today, Scudamore's Punting Company owns the world's largest fleet of punts, with nearly 150 craft available for hire along two routes of the River Cam.
Hotel Felix has negotiated special rates for punting with Scudamore's - guests at the hotel can enjoy reduced rates for single tickets, guided tour groups and romantic punting packages.
