Punting at Oxford is an activity that students and visitors engage in with fervor. The gentle Cherwell River that meets the Thames at Oxford offers an open invitation for anyone willing to get into the spirit of Oxford and try their hand at punting.
You can hire punts from the Magdalen Bridge Boathouse which is located under the bridge. The Cherwell flows past the picturesque landscape of the Oxford University Parks, Oxford Botanic Gardens and the verdant Christ Church meadows. It does make for a memorable outing.
