Discover: Bath Boating - 4th May

Explore Bath from a different perspective by going punting along the River Avon. The punt is a flat-bottomed boat propelled through the water by pushing a long pole against the river bed. Perfect for an afternoon break from revision, trying something new at an affordable cost and meeting new people along the way.

The boating station is located on Forester Road, just outside of the city centre. There will be two meeting points for students: the campus bus stop at 1pm, or the Dorchester Street bus station in town, also at 1pm. From each of these points your group will take a short bus ride over to the boating station. During purchase, please select whether you wish to meet the group on campus, on Dorchester Street, or if you’d prefer to make your own way to the boating station. Your selected meeting point will not affect who you spend the afternoon with whilst you are there. Please be advised that the bus fare is not included in the cost of the ticket and you will need to pay for this on the day.

The boating session starts at 2pm and you will have a two hours on the boats.
