Spent the day at the family fun park at water sport centre. Brilliant value at £11.99 each for segway, cycling, crazy golf and sky ropes. Kids loved it, staff really helpful and friendly. It poured down but was a lovely day. Would definitely recommend.

If you go to a regatta you expect all weathers & we got them! Go prepared especially in the boot dept. as the area quickly turns into a quagmire when it rains. This is a great place to watch rowing events etc.& go for walks. It's best to take a picnic as there's only one food outlet & it's very... More

I'd been white water rafting before but not at this centre. I'd heard good things and I wasn't disappointed. We were lucky enough to have George as our guide down the white water and he was excellent. A good briefing and spot on commands all the way down meant we kept the raft the right way up no matter what... More

Paid £350 for hire of raft, instructor and wet suits for 2 hours. Plenty of waiting with 3 x 2 minute runs down the course. Manhandling the raft back to the start each time is not fun, tiring. Being in river water with run-off chemicals, animal waste and bacteria causes illness (no, cola doesn't help). Not good value compared to... More

Not for the faint hearted. We had a great time, however, capsized twice trying to surf the rapids. The safety briefing was good - we needed all the advice. Sam, our guide, was excellent. I get the feeling he was a little disappointed when we did not want to get dunked and capsize a third time. Carrying the raft back... More

I came here with my wife and daughter for the canoe regatta weekend and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Plenty of canoe/kayak races for all ages kept us busy all Saturday and Sunday. Will definitely be coming back!

Went on a camping trip to a site just next to the National Water Sports Centre. I am not usually on for trying things like what is on offer but found my self trying out wakeboarding here. I turned out to be rubbish at it but it was an experience and was fun. It wasn't badly priced either, I think... More
