Electra - Something totally different

Electra is the new, fully electric, accessible community canal boat for Milton Keynes, run by a dedicated team of volunteers from the Bedford & Milton Keynes Waterway Trust.

Step aboard Electra for a peaceful, relaxing cruise along the Grand Union Canal. Along the way you’ll discover a different side to Milton Keynes as you meander through the parklands and take in the waterside wildlife.

Operating from Campbell Wharf, Electra offers private charter and public themed cruises for up to 12 guests, across Milton Keynes and beyond. Public cruises range from coffee and cake to fish and chips, spotter challenges for the kids, and even walking adventures.

If you’re after a memorable place for your next business meeting or a great day out for your family, our private charters can meet your needs.
