Experience the John Bunyan Boat

Welcome to the John Bunyan Boat

The John Bunyan Community Boat offers a range of scenic river cruises along the River Great Ouse in Bedford, enabling both local people and visitors to Bedford access to the wonderful river environment.

The John Bunyan Boat is operated by Bedford & Milton Keynes Waterway Enterprise Limited on behalf of the Bedford & Milton Keynes Waterway Trust. All funds and donations raised from the John Bunyan Community Boat go towards the development of a 16 miles (26Km) new waterway park, which will link the River Great Ouse in Bedford to the Grand Union Canal in Milton Keynes.

The John Bunyan Boats public cruising season starts in April and runs through until the end of October each year.

If you would like to join our team of volunteers, then please visit our volunteering page to see the latest opportunities.
