Welcome aboard the John Bunyan, Bedford’s Community Boat!
The John Bunyan boat offers fabulous and fascinating river cruises, and it's all in support of the Bedford & Milton Keynes Waterway Trust. Bridging the gap, between Bedford and Milton Keynes, with waterway parks.


So, now you are faced with the dilemma of choosing which cruise, where to go, with fish and chips, afternoon tea, jazz and all manner of wondrous things. Check out the Cruise page.

There are regular public trips and many special interest cruises or you could hire it yourself!

It's available from April to October for charter hire by businesses, community groups, schools and people. Perfect for private party bookings, wedding receptions, business away days, product launches, photo shoots, venue hire for special team building and pretty much whatever you can imagine*.

The John Bunyan boat is managed and run by volunteers and new recruits are always welcome to join our happy team.
Your choice - book a cruise, book the boat, become a volunteer … we look forward to hearing from you.
