Lee Valley Park, is an area that stretches from East London to Hertfordshire & has a host of attractions for all age groups ranging from a nice farm land to some nice museums & even a Whie water rafting centre for the more adventurous.

I chose to take in some nice sights of London by taking a leisurely stroll along the Canal Paths from Bow to Enfield one sunday & had a remarkable day out seeing some good historical parts of London/Essex.

I have also used the Golfing center & would say its one of the best short par courses i have played on.

I'd highly recommend a visit to the area one day/weekend.

I went white water rafting at Lee Valley last weekend, I received it as a gift for Christmas.

The experience itself was great fun, and I would most defiantly do it again. The water was freezing cold, and we had to jump in at the beginning to see our swimming ability. The instructor that we had was very good, he started by explaining what was going to happen and shouted instructions e.g. paddles up! In fact all of the staff were very good, they explained health and safety elements too very well, as some people may find the experiance a bit scary.

I think we went down 4 times each time swapping seats so you got a different experience which was good, I went at the front and got soaking wet!

We got some soup after which was nice and needed!

Lockers, swimsuits, footwear and helmets are provided and the changing room are basic, but fine.

I would recommend this experience, and when the Olympics are on I can say 'I have been there!'

I think each ticket was about £50, but very much worth it!!

This remarkable experience is a bit of a hidden gem. The brand new world class Olympic kayaking site affords a great couple of hours experience. The facilities are first class as you'd expect and there's a good level of safety. Despite this its clear that the chance of a dipping are high. It's great fun and not overly strenuous. Booking online is simple and there are plenty of slots available ahead of the April/May close down in advance of the Olympics. It's good value and a memorable experience. Tell your friends that you went white water rafting in Hertfordshire and watch their reaction!

The white water rafting was great and good value at £49 each for so much fun. This was ruined by the photo offers, £15 for 4 photos on a page or even worst £90 for 9cd's (there are nine in a boat) The blurb is ''that’s only £10 each and it includes all the photos and videos'' But when most groups are friends and family why do you need so many CD's. Them there is the content. This was 30 pictures and 3 videos, each one was only about 5 seconds long. My advice is, take someone along who is not participating and give them the camera. You can photograph all of the course with ease and you will end up with a better photo compilation. Jusdt don't use the on site guy-you don't have to.
