Priory Marina is the home mooring of the John Bunyan. Parking is free in the Priory Country Park car park, and from there, head towards to Beefeater restaurant. To the left of the restaurant garden you will see the Marina gates, the John Bunyan is moored to the left of that. Please wait at the barrier for a crew member to escort you to the mooring. Free Coach parking is also available in the left-hand side car park at the country park.
Located right next to the new Riverside North Development and the Star Rowing Club, Sovereign’s Quay is ideally located for Town Centre Access. Car Parking is available at Prebend Street (surface Level, Pay & Display) from the car park, head north on Prebend Street, then cross the road to join the Embankment path and follow the river east to the Quayside. Harpur Shopping centre and River Street car park are also close by. Please check times and payment terms carefully. Coaches can drop off/pick up on Horne Lane.
The mooring point for our Cruise Plus cruises and cruises booked through the Swan Hotel is located at the junction of Newnham Street and the Embankment, opposite Castle Mount, and should not be confused with Town Bridge Steps, slightly further upstream, directly outside the Swan Hotel. The closest car park is Lurke Street Car Park, and coaches can drop off at Castle Lane.
Visit the Bedford Borough Council website for up to date details on parking in the town centre.
