The first London 2012 venue you'll be able to enjoy after the Games - for an action packed season of white water rafting. You'll get several runs down the course. Sessions start with an adventurous first run designed to get you used to the feel of the boat and working as a team. 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!

Booked this for a family Christmas present as a charter and have had a fantastic time with Mark as our guide. Facilities and experience were brilliant and the staff were all very helpful and friendly. Mark did a great job, we felt very safe in his hands and we had great fun. Thanks Mark.

Seven of us from work had a fantastic time white water rafting at Lee Valley White Water Centre. Most of us were a bit nervous initially, but the rescue training was excellent and we felt safe as Rich is a fantastic instructor. He was funny, calm and by shouting out clear instructions managed to keep us all in the raft.... More

9 more mature ladies had a great morning experiencing the white water raft course under the excellent direction of Eamon. He was very patient with us and provided an experience best suited to the make up of the group, so that everyone enjoyed it. The facility is well organised and well equipped. I cannot fault it. The Friday, cheaper package... More

I went as a group of 4 in April, so we were placed in a raft with another group which wasn't a problem as we were still together. They teach you what to do if you fall out of the raft before you get in, and they explain the instructions that you have to follow to work as a team.... More

What a great time! Lucky to be invited to an active friends 60th birthday celebrations at the white water rafting centre. Detailed briefing followed by 4-5 runs down the rapids with our fab guide Eamon - who coped well with our mixed abilities. He carefully ensured that all of us had a great experience and felt totally safe yet exhilarated!... More

Nine of us had a fantastic, fun time White Water Rafting at Lee Valley Water Centre to celebrate a friend's 60th birthday. Eamon was in charge of the raft and controlled nine, giggly, middle aged females with aplomb! The safety and organisation at the Centre was incredibly good, making us feel very safe without dampening any of the excitement and... More

It was an adventure for all eleven of us and we went there with NO experience of water rafting, sailing or any kind of real 'fun' on the water. It was arranged as one of the eleven was getting married so some adrenaline was needed. We got that and more !! It was an absolutely fantastic day with extremely knowledgeable... More

Well run and felt safe...good experience for the family as you need to communicate and work together. Reason it's not full stars is not for the experience itself but more of the fact that you felt rushed like they only have an amount of time to get you in, trained, round a few times and then back out for the...
