We are on the Grand Union Canal, Linslade.
The boatyard is about a mile from the town centre and fifteen minutes walk from the Railway station. Leighton Buzzard is on the main railway line from London (Euston) to Birmingham and the North West and has a frequent train service.

Arriving by road, leave Leighton Buzzard through Linslade on the A4146 (Stoke Road) signposted to Milton Keynes, Bletchley & Stoke Hammond, after half a mile turn right down Rothschild Road. The boatyard is at the end of Rothschild Road.

Transport to and from Airport
We can provide a large taxi (6 or less people) to collect you, your crew and your luggage from London Airports. Please contact our office for current rates. For a tour of London to see Big Ben and the city sights on route to or from the boatyard there is an additional cost. Collection from other airports or ferry ports can also be arranged.

We can supply details of local hotels for overnight accommodation before and after your cruise.

We can provide storage for suitcases at the boatyard for the duration of your cruise.
