Punting is a truly timeless, slightly eccentric, quintessentially Oxford, idyllic pleasure.
Take a leisurely punt upstream, about half an hour from us is The Victoria Arms. Past the pub you can punt through beautiful rural country side, ideal for a full day out. Downstream takes you through the lovely University Parks, a great spot for picnics and games with the kids. To travel further in to Oxford you need to tackle the rollers to portage your punt to the lower Cherwell and on to Magdalen college.
Suitable for novices and experts alike, students, corporate parties, families and groups of friends can all experience this quintessential Oxford experience of punting on the river Cherwell.
