Romantic punting on the River Cherwell

Oxford, Oxfordshire

Ever watched people punting and felt you’d like to have a go? Pick up a few tips at Cherwell Boathouse, grab the pole and off you go.

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.
