If you think that riding a UK’s gondola is an easy thing to do, you make a mistake. Still, as you come to Cambridge, the empire of knowledge, you will be taught by the experienced guides who will show you how to control the boat. So after a couple of hours, you will be able to propel the punt along with a long pole in your hands set against the river board.
All you have to do is to let your inner rhythm take over and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings. For sure, there is no better place than Cambridge to learn something new. You probably will not get a degree but you will get a skill that for sure will impress your mates. What is more, the River Cam is a great chance to enjoy the pleasant meadows and the historic sights of Cambridge.
Even if you are not interested in master punting, you can still enjoy the tour with an experienced punter who will take you around and will tell you interesting facts about the local history.
There is always a chance that you do not like being a passenger of a gondola. Still, it does not mean that River Cam is not for you. You can just enjoy the activity from one of the pubs on the riverside without a need to control the boat and without a fear of getting wet.

Since 1958 the garden was set up as a charitable garden trust, so today everyone can enjoy charming beauty of this place.
