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! « less

Never been on the water here but it's a great place to take the kids for a bike ride, it's flat and it's great to watch the canoeists make their way round the course and often fall in. Then you can cycle along the nearby canal. Right next door is a frisbee golf course, you can buy a frisbee at... More

This olympic course lives up to its name as my colleagues and I had a great time! Our instructor Erik was fantastic and really wanted to give us our money's worth as he took us round multiple times, each time making it more daring and adventurous than the last. The facilities are brilliant with a cafe and bar on site... More

Alison, Cambs Group trip of adults and teenagers, all had a great day. The kids were with Adam and had a brill time. Adults were with Eamon who was patient, funny and talked through what would happen before we tried anything new. If you enjoy going out of your comfort zone, you will enjoy the thrill of rafting. Great facilities... More

Myself and 8 other ladies went to Lee Valley White Water Centre and we had the best time. Our instructor Paul was great fun and I think as we were all ladies he expected us to fall in. We surprised him, we didn't. We all obeyed his instructions and we all want to go again. The staff are very friendly... More

Excellent staff (especially our instructor Paul), very well run, good equipment, great course. Overall a very fun day. Something a little different for a birthday present. Only fault would be the incredibly over priced photos which they push at you.

Went on Sat 6th September to celebrate my husband's birthday. Our group had an amazing time. Max was our guide and he was really good. Expect to get very wet!
