How romantic to use punts as transport on the rippling Avon! You can arrive by punt in truly regal style, or you can depart and be wafted away after the big event, waving from our unique Bridal Punt with its own beautiful floral canopy. What better way to celebrate your special day!

We appreciate this tribute from Raina Roberts:

“Thank you for a truly wonderful punt ride! My mother and bridesmaids were a little concerned about getting on and off the punt without getting wet, but your staff were excellent and helped us do this easily, without any problems. The incredible scenery and relaxed, peaceful journey, made this experience one of the highlights of my wedding day!”

Welcome Aboard Punting on the Avon, located at Antigua Boatsheds, 2 Cambridge Terrace.
