The punting! The punt was good.

The queueing system is a little disorganised as you are in the same queue to book and return so we were worried we might be charged extra for going over time while waiting in the queue when we had made sure that we came back within the hour.

A trip on the river followed by a meal in the nearby hotel [quieter than the tourist pubs and the bar menu is very reasonable] makes for a very pleasant family get together

Punting is river travel for those who like to do things the hard way. Definitely an experience not a commute.
