Business information


Jack Scudamore was at the very heart of the pleasure-punting movement of the early 20th Century and is credited with introducing the activity to Cambridge. Jack spotted the opportunity and founded the company on his return from the Boer War to ensure that he could work doing something that he loved – helping others to experience the local beauty.

Pleasure punting proved to be incredibly popular with the Cambridge University pupils with many notable names regularly taking to the water whether it be for relaxation or frolics! The activity became so essential when spending time at Cambridge that you’d be hard pressed to find a student, famous or otherwise, that hadn’t taken a Scudamore’s punt along the River Cam or River Granta.

Jack initially started with the Granta Place Boatyard and the nearby Punting Station on Mill Lane. Due to the popularity of punting, he managed to add a further station for Magdalene Bridge Punting

Today, We're the UK’s oldest punting company offering both do-it-yourself boat hire and punting tours. We're always happy to tailor our services to special requests - get in touch with our Bookings Team on 01223 359750.
