Punting

Punting

Punting refers to boating in a "punt" which is a flat-bottomed boat with  a square-cut bow designed for small rivers or other shallow water. The  punt is propelled by the punter using a pole rather than an oar used in  gondolas. Punting is one of the most famous attractions in Oxford as  thousands of tourists, local residents and students turn to the boats to  spend the day in the river Cherwell that flows through Oxford's  protected green belt of fields and woods before joining the renowned  river Thames to continue its journey to London. Punting in Oxford is a  very serene experience with the scenic views of rural England on  display.
