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!

This was a totally original day out which was great fun for the whole team. We all had a tremendous time and the mix of adrenaline and exercise along with a fun event made the day an absolute winner. No rafting experience needed and the team leads were great making sure the boat got the most from the experience.

It was a friends birthday so about 6 of us decided to go white water rafting. We were all blown away by how great our time there was. The facilities are brand new, the staff were funny and lively (we had an instructor called Paul was a constant source laughs), the rafting itself was the most fun we had in... More

We had a great Hen Party at Lee Valley. The staff were great and very attentive to every member of our party, even those that were nervous and hesitant. Very easy to organise through the reception staff. Great venue, a couple of our hens didn't white water raft but still had a great afternoon following us all around the course.... More

8 of us took to the white water rafting course on a typical Brisith Summer's day (torrential rain)....not that it mattered as we were wet the entire time anyway!! Arek, was a fantastic instructor, who even managed to prevent a cap-size throughout the entire duration. The safety briefing is thorough and Arek made it througoughly entertaining! Incredibly fun day out,... More

Well organised centre with friendly and competent staff. We were given good quality equipment and received clear instructions about what we would be doing on the water. Once on the water, we were able to practise the necessary skills, we had to get into the water and pull each other back onto the raft, we also practised paddling and 'getting... More

Visited with my division at work as part of a team building day. It started with building a raft, then racing the built raft and then a white water experience on the Olympic course. The staff were professional, patient and personable and the experience itself was truly amazing. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a new experience... More

I would highly recommend the white water rafting. My instructor Paul who was really nice, had extensive knowledge and knew how to cater for our ride on the water. Will be going back again.

This place is impressive. Worth going just to watch others go down the circuit. Also a good picnic spot, plenty of free seating along the banks with good views. We just went to see the place and ended up staying for hours. Very professionally run with an emphasis on safety.
