They make you sit on opposite sides to balance the weight. And you have back rests so that we can relax as we move. The boatsmen even taught us to navigate the boat with the pole. It was really exciting.

if you are looking for a ride on one of the river punts, the hire station by the Tourist Info is closed in winter, instead walk north of the river and some private operators take people out here.
