River Cam

The River Cam runs from the junction with the Great Ouse at Pope's Corner, and passes through some beautiful countryside before reaching the historic city of Cambridge. End of navigation is the Mill Pond, just beyond Jesus lock in Cambridge.

Visiting boaters will need a 90 day licence from Conservators of River Cam to venture on to the Cam. (Tel 01223 646 459).
