Valentine’s day is the most romantic time of the year, and a Cambridge punt is perfect for a
well-deserved date night to celebrate true love with your special someone. You can take your
loved one on a relaxing historical tour so that you can fall in love with Cambridge together on a
peaceful trip while holding hands and cuddling on the river. Here is why Cambridge is such a
special place to celebrate romance in the air with your significant other.
Feel the Romance on The River Cam
Punting in Cambridge is one of the best surprises you can gift that wonderful person in your life
this upcoming valentine’s day. A Cambridge punt on the River Cam will transport you through
the heart of the city and will grow your hearts for each other too. It will reward you with
breath-taking views of the famous bridges and colleges that line the river. This traditional
English pastime is ideal for couples who want to book a private tour to spend quality time
together amidst all the scenery. To make your Cambridge punt extra special, your chauffeur can
provide cushions and blankets to keep you warm as you huddle close during the ride. Your boat
can also be decorated with roses and any other perks you might want to make your trip as
romantic as possible just for the two of you. Since this is a private tour, you can make a playlist
with all your favourite love songs to listen to during the ride while popping open that bottle of
champagne on the water during sunset.
Explore History Together
If you share a passion for culture and learning together, a Cambridge punting trip will fulfil your
desire for history with some mind-blowing tales. You will also get up close and personal with
some of the most iconic buildings and sights, such as the grounds of Trinity College, The
Mathematical Bridge, Kings College Chapel, The Bridge of Sighs, Clare Bridge, New Court St
Johns, The Wren Library, and so much more. These are the locations where academic geniuses
made England a world leader thanks to alumni members, such as the legendary Stephen
Hawking, Sir Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Edward VII, George VI, Sylvia Plath, and Alan Turing.
If you and your partner enjoy the famous Netflix show “The Crown,” you will be pleased to
know that Olivia Colman, who plays her majesty the Queen in season three, is also an alumnus
of the university.
For the Adventurers
This valentine’s day, you can also go on an exciting ghost tour while punting in Cambridge if you
prefer something offbeat and thrilling. This is a fun way to experience Cambridge’s darker side
with a spooky trip that will keep you and your loved one on the edge of your seats the entire
time. There is a lot of history in Cambridge, and a lot of epic stories of scary hauntings at the
colleges. If that does not scare you enough, Freddie Highmore, who played Norman Bates from
Bates Motel, is also a Cambridge University graduate.
