GoHen Testimonial

punting hen do in cambridge

There is just something so utterly relaxing about drifting lazily along the beautiful River Cam that makes punting the perfect addition to a Cambridge hen weekend. A great tonic for the bride-to-be after weeks of often stressful wedding planning and certainly a great way to cure any fragile heads from the previous night's cocktail excesses.

On this hour long session your designated punt guide and chauffeur will take you on a tour to discover this charming city, giving you details of the sights and stories of some of Cambridge's more colourful characters. Or if you prefer you can skip the talk and just use the trip as a great chance to catch up with all the girls' news in a truly captivating setting.

There are two different routes available, the College Backs and Grantchester. The Backs route is more of a sight-seeing affair, with highlights including King's College Chapel, the Wren Library and the Bridge of Sighs. The trip to the rural idyll of Grantchester is more tranquil, winding through woods and meadows.

Each punting boats has capacity of up to 12 hens and come equipped with warm blankets and umbrellas to shield you should the weather be against you. This really is the perfect chance to relax and enjoy a slower pace of life with great friends and fantastic scenery during this most timeless of pastimes.

If you fancy something a little bit extra to celebrate the occasion, why not try fabulous variations on the norm such as Cocktail Punting, Champagne Punting or our Treasure Hunt Punt? You can even treat yourself to an Afternoon Tea once you've reached dry land! Please speak to a member of our team for more details.
