Reason 3: Punting
There is something almost mesmerising about the way punting fits into the overall Cambridge atmosphere. The river flows around the city centre, enclosing its history, and you will actually feel like you’re in Venice when the little punts come round (those are the Venice-like boats).
They move quite slowly and controlling one very well is definitely harder than it looks. Yet it’s just one of the things that you shouldn’t miss when vising Cambridge.
When will you get another opportunity to feel like you’re in two places at once (Venice and Cambridge)?
