About Lee Valley White Water Centre
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.

I would recommend the Whitewater rafting experience to any couple or group who want an action-packed adventure with the added bonus that you are experiencing the thrills and spills of an Olympic course.

We booked for our 2 little ones to see santa, the grotto was a shed and it lasted about 3 mins. To be fair the santa was good and the gifts were at a good standard. The fairground with it is a rip off! £2-£4...More
