Owner description: 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.

“Amazing for both Work & Play ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2015 via mobile

Our company hosted a meeting at the Lee Valley White Water Centre. The facilities were top class, catering too of the highest order.
The afternoon was spent raft building which was a highly enjoyable event before we ventured on to the white water itself. This was certainly the highlight for me. Massive adrenaline rush, caters for all.
Can't wait to return!!!

“Great Visit. What a morning!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2015

Myself and 5 buddies booked a charter session.
This gave us about 2 hours in our own boat.
This translates as about 8 runs down the circuit.
Our guide, Paul was exceptional. Calm, fun and reassuring.
Lots of fun to be had.
Definitely be back.

“Great, but not cheap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2015

Went here for the first time with work colleagues on a Friday night, most of whom had been before. Excellent experience. Their organisation is flawless, as is the customer care. All the staff I dealt with were professional and friendly. It isn't cheap, but you can see that the money goes on making sure everyone has a great and trouble free time. My only criticisms are that if you're going to sell alcohol stock something other than lagers and ciders, and that the pedestrian route to your front gate needs to be better lit.

Thank you for your recent visit we’re pleased to hear that you enjoyed your experience; we do run special offers throughout the year which makes white water rafting cheaper when there are 9 of you. Currently, we’re running Fast and Furious Fridays which works out as £35pp and if you fancy something different you can try our Hot Dog sessions and save £30. Please visit our website for more details. Thank you for your comments about the alcohol, we currently sell wine, beer and cider but are trialling other alcoholic drinks at the moment. We hope to see you again in the future.

We visited as a hen party and had a whale of a time! Eamon and Sam looked after us and we had a wonderful time with at least five goes round the course. We had a couple of nervous people and we were well looked after- all raving about how much fun we had- thank you so much for unforgettable memories!

“The power of the water is immense.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2015 via mobile

From the moment we arrived at Lee Valley all of the staff took great care of us. They were so friendly and helpful it made a really special experience. The facilities are great. Our instructor Adam was brilliant, patient and supportive and always checking that everyone was comfortable as the runs became more challenging. It was so much fun - a really great experience. Go now - you will not be disappointed. Really, really great fun!!!!
