Picnic Punting Tours

A delightful package

If you’re looking for a way to further improve a luxurious punting experience, then why not add a picnic? Combining the relaxing glide of the punt down the river, the magnificence of the college sites & the taste of delicious fresh food is a feast of the senses. It’s an ideal add-on to any of our tours, or alternatively, it makes a great gift voucher.

Le Patissier

To offer a picnic we have teamed up with Le Patissier. Situated within the heart of St. Johns College, they specialize in delicious food. In order to create a traditional offering, fit for a punt tour we have selected fresh cream teas, cakes & delicate finger sandwiches. Just in case you are not English, then cream tea is actually scones, cream & Jam (traditionally served with tea). If you do want actual tea, then that is also available. If you have any allergies, then you can let us know during the booking process.
