All new Autumn cruises on the John Bunyan Boat

The John Bunyan Boat’s 2020 Season launched on Bank Holiday Monday 31st August with two 1 hour cruises from Sovereign’s Quay. Have a look at what’s on offer this Autumn…

“We’ll be doing the same every Thursday and Sunday throughout September departing at 2pm and 3.30pm. Ticket cost is £14 for a table for two, or £26 for a table of four.


“We are now excited to announce our October cruise programme. We’re offering a 1.5hr cruise on both Thursdays and Sundays, starting at 1.30pm from Priory Marina.

“You will also have the option to add a Cream Tea to your order to enjoy on your trip, plus there will be hot and soft drink to purchase onboard.

“Ticket cost is £21 for a table for two, or £40 for a table for four. Cream Teas are from £6 a person and have to be ordered in advance.


“And if that’s not enough, we’re delighted to be back at The Barns Hotel for an Afternoon Tea cruise on 7th October- tickets are limited and already selling fast, so get in while you can! Ticket price for a table of two is £52, or for a table for four £100.

“To ensure we can comply with Social Distancing guidelines, we are restricting our capacity to 12, which means we can only accept bookings from parties of 2 or 4 people. Each party must be part of the same support bubble.

“The John Bunyan Boat is taking part in Bedford’s Fiver Fest, organised by Town Centre Champions. We’re offering 2 cream teas for a fiver during the fortnight of 10th October to 24th October on Sunday and Thursday cruises when you purchase tickets via our website. Usual price £6 each. Just place the fiver fest offer in your basket when you book your tickets.
