Cambridge Punting and Afternoon Tea is a must do hen party activity for girls who love a bit of sightseeing and a delicious spread. Punting in Cambridge is like water taxis in Amsterdam, it's just gotta be done. Each one of these handy vessels can handle up to 12 passengers, and are adorned with cushions and blankets - and even additional blankets or umbrellas if the weather changes on you.
Climb on board and allow friendly guides to whisk you away on a 60 minute tour of Cambridge's gloriously beautiful College Backs. Never heard of 'The Backs'? It's a stunning, postcard-perfect area to the east of Queen's Road in Cambridge, where the backs of several colleges of the University of Cambridge back onto the River Cam. Think historic buildings, lush green landscapes and verdant forest, it's a tranquil setting for a punt along the river.
Nothing says I'm fabulous better than posh afternoon tea at a 4* venue. Your bride tribe can choose to take afternoon tea before or after your punting tour of College Backs. The venue for your posh afternoon spread is only a short walk from the punting stations. Arrive at the venue, have a catch up with your favourite ladies and sip on some glorious cream tea.
The quintessential English activity, afternoon tea is a 'must do' for any hen party! Tuck into a palate pleasing spread of traditional English sandwiches including: smoked salmon, cream cheese and cucumber, egg and cress and English ham and mustard. There will be a selection of fresh, handmade classic fruit scones and mini desserts. Toast the bride with pinkies up in a posh afternoon tea party with your favourite ladies.
