Trinity maintains a Punt Scheme, which is open both to members of College and to members of the general public. With the exception of members of the College who have requested to hire punts overnight by prior arrangement with the Punt Keeper, we do not accept advanced bookings of punts, and we operate on a strict first-come first-served basis.
The punts are accessed from the entrance to Trinity. Punts are available for hire each year from the Friday before Easter (Good Friday) until mid-October. The Punt House usually opens each day at 11 am (Mon – Fri) and 10 am (weekends). Hiring finishes at 5.30 pm and punts must be returned by 6.30 pm each day. Only members of the College may hire punts overnight, by prior arrangement with the Punt Keeper.
OPENING HOURS (subject to weather conditions):
Monday-Friday: 11am – 6.30 pm.
Saturday-Sunday: 10 am – 6.30 pm.
Open from Good Friday to the end of October. Public Hiring may be restricted on certain days when punts are reserved for College activities (e.g on the day and night of the May Ball).
