Cambridge Edition August 2020 - WEB




The most quintessentially Cambridge of all summer activities, punting has had to make changes in this brave new world. It may be a very traditional industry, but the city’s operators have wasted no time in implementing high-tech solutions to new regulations and restrictions. Let’s Go Punting has created an online booking platform with a text messaging service to alert punters of their boat’s departure, eliminating queues, as well as launching the first audio tour app for punting, which delivers snippets of info about the historic buildings as you glide past. Another new addition is Perspex screens to form a protective barrier between groups from different households, making for a safe and relaxing day on the river.

You’ll be king of the swingers on a treetop adventure at Go Ape, which offers a range of

high-flying adventures from its woodland base in Thetford. It’ll be easy to social distance as you navigate your way along the treetop crossings, tackle obstacles and have fun exploring the wilderness. There are also routes for cycling, plus you can try archery, have a go on giant swings, visit treehouses and pyramids, and zoom about on an off-road Segway.
