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.

Lovely new centre with fabulous outdoor activities. The place itself I cannot fault. Would be perfect for families or business. The only gripe I had was with the manager. Her attitude was appalling and was very rude.

Disappointing use of 100 words. Made the effort to get there. 10 -12 stalls. More staff than punters

Amazing experience from start to finish. Incredibly professional and well run, very safe but also great fun. Rich was our guide on a hilarious action packed afternoon. I arrived with 2 30 year old friends, we were added to a couple and all had a great time.

Such a good setup. We arrived in good time and the centre is well presented. Staff were very helpful and handed out the equipment provided, all which was good quality and very clean. Free lockers are available and loads of space in the changing rooms. There was a long safety talk which was long but essential and didn't waste time.... More

We visited Lee Valley in the summer to do a tandem bike ride and came across this superb venue so we booked it for early November 2016 and have to say it was the most fun we have had since either of us can remember. The water was freezing cold but the wet suits really helped and once you had... More

Went white water rafting here as a work trip and would thoroughly recommend. Not sure a freezing November afternoon is the best time to visit, but once you get working it's easy to stay warm. Had a great time. Rich was in charge of our boat and got us working well together and we got to do come pretty cool... More

We popped in to check out this Olympic venue and found Team GB training, it was amazing. Lovely cafe with leather sofas to relax and enjoy a tasty coffee and lunch. Huge patio looking down over the water park. What an amazing facility.
