Lee Valley White Water Centre was host to the London 2012 Olympic Games and you can now experience a range of activities at this venue. Rafting the Olympic course is a must for anyone ticking things of their bucket list! You'll get several runs down the course. We progressively up the fear factor each time and by your final run you’ll be surfing, high siding, spinning and nose dunking with the very best!

You can also choose from our range of other white water activities and a choice of canoeing and kayaking sessions, from family paddling on our lake to mastering our two white water courses.

Everyone had so much fun and overcame lots of fears and increased anxiety levels, and all said they would do it again. The adrenaline rush was... More

Chartering a raft is well worth the money-our instructors Alex and Tom were great fun and made the experience that much more enjoyable. Our two buckets of beer purchased with the drinks voucher which came with the package only made the afternoon after the rafting on their beautiful sun-bathed roof terrace that much more enjoyable. Would highly recommend. (Party of... More

As organiser of the group I rang the centre several times before booking to get the options that suited us best and found... More

Good changing facilities. The rafts, wets suits, boots, helmets and life jackets were all of the best quality. The terrace is a great place to chill out. It... More

Came with no clue as to what it would be like and had a great time. Our guides Shaun and Tom were both professional and fun - making as aware of safety needs whilst allowing us to feel confident to shoot the rapids. We were from 16-69 and all loved it - sit at the front for the most exciting... More

5 of us went to Lee Valley today and had the BEST day! Literally the most fun I have had in years. We done hydro speeding to start with which was fun but then went on to do white water rafting which was insane. So much fun and cannot praise our instructor 'Gen' enough. She works so hard and completely... More
