Wednesday 16 June

Punting tour and riverside barbeque (included in ticket price)

Sit back and relax with a glass of Pimm's* as your University crew member guides you down the River Cam in a traditional punt boat. The tour lasts for approximately sixty minutes and takes in sights such as the iconic Bridge of Sighs, King's College Chapel, and many riverside colleges. Easy access ramps are available for wheelchair users. If you have any concerns about accessibility, please contact us via email at

Having built up an appetite after a busy first day at EWIC 2021, your punting crew member will drop you off on the door step of the Granta pub, where you will enjoy a riverside barbeque**.
