We look forward to seeing you onboard

Most cruises depart from/return to our mooring at Campbell Wharf, at the end of Avebury Boulevard in Central Milton Keynes. Postcode MK9 4BG. There is a drop off point nearby and there are steps or a ramp to get down to the waterside.

We regret that there is no public or disabled parking available here. All parking is 10-15 minutes’ walk away, as shown on the map.

Selected cruises depart from/return to Great Linford Manor Park, where there is plentiful public and disable car parking. It’s a 5-10 minute walk from the car park to Electra’s waterside mooring. Use the accessible path shown on this map.

Special event cruises depart from a variety of canalside locations. Details of where to park and where to meet Electra are sent with your tickets and/or publicised on the website at the time.

School holiday cruises that combine cruises with a guided walk always start by meeting the walk leader in a designated car park. The walk leader then accompanies you to the Electra boarding point. Please follow the details sent with your ticket.
