The John Bunyan Community Boat offers river cruises, enabling both local people and visitors access to the wonderful river environment. All funds raised from the John Bunyan Community Boat go toward conservation and development of a broad waterway park, which will link the Grand Union Canal in Milton Keynes to the river Great Ouse in Bedford through a series of waterway parks. More information on the waterway park can be found on the Bedford and Milton Keynes waterway trust website.

We offer regular weekly cruises including Afternoon Tea, Fish & Chip Suppers, Jazz Evenings, Folk on the Boat, Motown & Northern Soul and more!

Private charters are available for any event of your choice, with bookings often being taken from local businesses, schools and community groups for birthdays, wedding/anniversary events, corporate days out, educational trips and many more!

The John Bunyan Community Boat is operated and maintained by volunteers, and we are always on the look out for talented individuals to join the team. You don't need to have any previous experience, just a 'can do' attitude.

So whether you wish to book a cruise, charter or join our team we look forward to welcoming you aboard!
