Forget the beach this summer and head to Lee Valley White Water Centre for an aquatic-themed fun day on Sunday 19 July with exciting activities as well as a licensed bar, BBQ and live band to keep everyone entertained.

Visitors can get drenched on the raging rapids with rafting, hydrospeeding and hot dog sessions, enjoy a paddle on the lake with an introductory canoeing session or challenge the inflatable water wipeout obstacle course. 

Calum Ferris-Lay, Lee Valley White Water Centre Assistant Manager said: “There’s something for everyone at this fun day which we’re holding at the very height of summer.

“Rather than head to the crowded seaside visitors can soak up the atmosphere by venturing onto the white water rapids, racing over the water wipeout course or cooling down in a canoe on the lake. All equipment is provided for the activities so it’s a terrific opportunity to try something new.

“There will be lots of fun activities to enjoy on dry land as well as the chance to relax with drinks and a BBQ on our wooden terrace overlooking the white water action.”

Other activities available in the beautiful surroundings of this London 2012 venue include a 100 foot inflatable obstacle course, bouncy castle, garden games, disc golf, face painting, an Olympic themed treasure hunt as well as some furry visitors from nearby Lee Valley Park Farms.

A fast track pass is available for £3 enabling visitors to jump the queue and enjoy priority access to the water wipeout, face painting, 100 foot inflatable obstacle course as well as canoeing on the lake. There are a limited number of these passes available which are expected to be popular so pre-booking is recommended.

The Family Fun Day at Lee Valley White Water Centre takes place on Sunday 19 July between 11:00 and 16:00. Entry is free but there is a charge for water activity and pre-booking is recommended for white water activities to guarantee your place.
