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.

We had a fantastic time rafting yesterday with Csaba , our Hungarian instructor. It was such great fun and we were really fortunate with the weather too. We stayed afterwards to have a drink in the sunshine. It was a lovely way to finish a great day.

Myself and three friends had a brilliant time. Paz our instructor was great, easing us in while we got the hang of it and then building up the difficulty for maximum excitement on each trip round. The organisation and facilities couldn't be faulted, and safety was paramount - I got thrown into the water twice but was swiftly pulled out... More

All of the staff were informative and attentive, the equipment was is really good condition and the activity is great fun. the safety assessments mean... More

Amazing Day. From the minute we got there to the minute we left all the staff were efficient and helpful. Our raft was lead by Jen and all I can say is she was fantastic. This is a woman who loves her job! She was super friendly and funny but also understanding and caring at the same time and definitely... More

We chartered a raft experience for our Stag Do to start off the weekend. Absolutely fantastic day. Shaun our guide was excellent throughout. Was able to get across all the information required to be able to do the rafting whilst tailoring to our group and of course having a laugh at the stags expense. Once the swim test had been... More

Our second white water rafting experience and it was great. Jorge the instructor was fun and explained everything clearly. We felt safe but still excited as we crashed through the water and performed some more difficult and testing manoeuvres. We all fell in at certain points and this made the day all the better! If anything, we'd have like it... More

We did the birthday package. The rafting was incredible. Great fun and not a bad workout either. Our instructor, Rich A, was perfect. The only thing that let the place down was the food after. We called up twice during the week before our trip to explain that some members of our group had dietary requirements but when we arrived... More

This was my second rafting experience and it did not fail to excite. My friends, for whom it was their first rafting, were in awe. All vowing to return at some time with their families and friends. The only down side was the cafe. The prices were a bit steep. However, if you want urban adventure there can be nothing... More
