PUNTING ON THE AVON LATIMER CHRISTCHURCH
There are 5 different meanings for the word ‘punt’.
A type of kick,
An old monetary unit of the Republic of Ireland,
To take a guess about something,
The dent in the bottom of a wine bottle, and
A long, narrow, flat-bottomed boat, square at both ends and propelled with a long pole.
In this instance we are only interested in the last meaning of the word. On Christchurch’s Avon river, you can experience the Edwardian tradition of taking a punt ride. Complete with your own Punter, you will be guided quietly past trailing willows, woodlands and leafy banks as you absorb the beauty of Christchurch’s Hagley Park.
Each Punting tour is 30 minutes duration with informative commentary, and you are returned to your point of departure.
Bookings are recommended, especially for groups.
