Punting  can be the perfect  occasion  for families ,  groups  , romantic couples , it  is a truly timeless, slightly eccentric, quintessentially Oxford, idyllic pleasure: sailing leisurely upstream or down river, trailing fingers in the silky water, admiring the wildlife, picnicking on a river bank, dropping in at the Vicky Arms or drifting downstream past the University parks . The punting season is mid March to mid October open ten am till dusk.
