Owner description: 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.

Visited today for a family rafting experience and so glad we did. The rafting was great fun, engaging our 2 teenage boys in a way that I thought only their computers could do. Really good experience from start to end, and we were expertly looked after by our instructor, Chris, throughout. To top it off, the centre has a lovely cafe and some great walks.

We have just had the most amazing experience at Lea Valley white water centre. We booked one boat for three of us and it was well worth the £150. You can have up to 5 people with 2 adults maximum. I recommend Costadina who was superb as our instructor and team leader. He was brilliant fun. Also, really impressed with the number of other instructors there to ensure safety,they were really on the ball!!!

Thank you for your kind review of Lee Valley White Water Centre. It’s great to hear you had an epic time on our Family Raft! Our guides pride themselves on creating a fun and safe environment for all the rafters. We hope to see you again soon for another adventure. You should try Hot Dogs, a canoe made for two.

Went here for my daughters 10th birthday booked a group of 10 for ice skating £75 which I thought wasn’t bad. The ice ring is quite small but nice.
The Christmas pop up market/fair could do with some improvements other than that it wasn’t bad at all.
