About this location

Lee Valley White Water Centre, located between Waltham Cross and Waltham Abbey was the first London 2012 venue to open Show more… to the public before and after the Games. Over 50,000 spectators attended the centre during the canoe slalom event at London 2012, which culminated in gold and silver medals for GB on the final day.

Since opening in April 2011, it has attracted 160,000 visitors, almost 40,000 of whom took part in paddle sports.

The centre is open from Wednesday to Sunday for white water rafting. No experience is necessary and the thrill of a lifetime is guaranteed. Courses are also provided at the centre and through our local partner organisations for beginner kayakers and the Olympic and Legacy courses are also available for those more experienced paddlers in sessions throughout the week.

If all this sounds a bit too exhausting, then why not just come down and grab a coffee from the café and watch the action from our great deck
