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.

Laughs all round and we came off the water buzzing with excitement. This was personally my third time of visiting and... More

The courses themselves are great to paddle on and the staff are really helpful with any activity you're doing. I took a group of 18 rafting, chartered 2 rafts at... More

Today we have brought 19 sixth form students to Lee Valley, with 3 rafts on the Olympic Course.

This year we had instructors Tom, Jorge and Sean - all of which were excellent and ensured... More
