Punting

The newly-inaugurated College Punt, the John Benstead, is available for reservations via Booker. You can find it by searching for 'College Punt'. Please familiarise yourself with these rules, noting the following especially:

  • The punt should only be booked for the following times (currently there is no easy way to restrict bookings on the system so it is up to the user to select the right time):
    • 07.00 – 11.00
    • 11.00 – 15.00
    • 15.00 – 19.00
  • The lead organiser must bring photo ID to exchange for the keys at the Porters’ Lodge
  • At least one person must remain sober throughout
  • Arrive in plenty of time to walk to the river for the start of your booking
  • Do not exchange keys with the next group; they will get their own set

Clare Hall participates in Scudamore’s Student Punt Scheme which allows for a substantial discount off the cost of hiring a craft on the River Cam, a uniquely Cambridge experience.
