A – Z of Punting
Here’s a fun A-Z of punting by our chauffeur, Max. See if you can tick off the alphabet on your visit!
A is for Anchor
This is the pub once frequented by Pink Floyd, moreover where a few of their first live performances took place.
B is for Benedict Spinola, the weird bust opposite Magdalene college.
C is for Concussion Bridge, mind your head!
D is for Ducks. Soooo many ducks. Always hungry.
E is for Erasmus Building, a rather controversial building.
F is for Flood markers, seen on Concussion Bridge.
G is for Garde Ta Foy, the latin phrase found near Magdalene.
H is for Heron, a rare but beautiful bird seen on the river.
I is for Ivy, growing all over the back of The New Court.
J is for Jerwood Library, the library that announces itself.
K is for King’s College Chapel, located at…well, King’s College.
L is for Lover’s Lane, where couples go to…..kiss.
M is for Magdalene bridge, where the mythical Cam Bridge once stood.
N is for “No Mooring”, a sign on the river no one follows.
O is for Oak trees, towering over the river.
P is for Pickerel, the oldest pub still around in Cambridge.
Q is for Quayside, where our punting tours begin.
R is for River, it’s the thing punts are floating on….
S is for Self-hires, crashing into you with no rhyme or reason.
T is for Tourists, asking where’s the University Of Cambridge.
U is for Undergraduates, watching the punts go by.
