Enjoy punting on the river Cherwell at Oxford's biggest punt station, the Cherwell Boathouse. With over 70 hand built boats available for hire, it's a trip along the River Cherwell is the perfect place to take your partner on a romantic afternoon.

There are shady shallows, blossom-laden bushes and low-slung bridges to negotiate – not to mention the rollers to take you to the next river level. After your trip it's only right to indulge in some delicious grub; and the Cherwell Boathouse offers a range of options. If you’d like to enjoy al fresco dining on dry land, drop into the Teahut Bar and Café for a light meal on the river terrace, or alternatively you can pre-order a sumptuos picnic from the Teahut bar and enjoy it along the river banks or on your rip down the river.
