Situated just under an hour from London Lee Valley is one of the world’s best white water parks. The course was used during the 2012 Olympics so is definitely state of the art.

You can do all sorts of activities there – canoeing, kayaking or even get some other parents or older kids together and do a session in a big inflatable raft.

Kids will love: Hydrospeeding – navigating the choppy waters on a body board.

Adults will love: A great restaurant and bar to relax in and watch the kids having fun.
