About Lee Valley White Water Centre
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.

An amazing afternoon. We did white water rafting, a friend and I plus a 13 Yr old and 2 x 12 Yr olds. Great fun was had by all. Our instructor James was amazing and made sure we had the best and safest experience. We did not stop laughing. The kids loved it "time of our lives" (direct quote). We will be back for sure, highly recommend.

A White Water rafting experience was purchased as a Christmas gift for me by my girlfriend. Originally we where booked in for June 2020 but due to Covid we couldn’t attend & therefore rebooked for September. Re-booking the session was easy & we got very lucky with the weather for sure! We turned up & where promptly booked in, provider with kit & told when our security briefing would start. We where on the rapids with a couple of other boats but Lucinda & I where in a boat with another couple & it was great fun. Our Instructor Stu was very friendly & made the safety briefing & whole experience for that matter very fun & very interesting. After a quick but informative security briefing we got straight into going down the rapids. Each pair taking turns in different positions & gradually as we all got more confident going down the route quicker. I felt very safe at all times as there are also spotters as each corner of the track, so as well as the training Stu provided, if you do manage to fall off the boat so one is always very close by to help you out the rapids. I would highly recommend the experience & also our instructor Stu. For me he made the day. We’ll definitely back! Nick & Lucinda

We had a go at the hotdogs and it was fantastic. 4 adults, 2 x 12 year olds and 2 x 13 year olds. Fantastic. Funny, exhausting and great fun. We definitely plan to come again. Theo and the lovely female assistant were very professional, reassuring and helpful. Very clear briefing for complete first timers.

What a let down. Waited so long to go back with the dogs; got there after 11.30 when they were SUPPOSED to open and they were SHUT. It doesn't take much to put up an explanation why they weren't open. If it's on the web site then it is clearly not clear for people to see!!!
