Apart from all the sightseeing and exploring the ancient landmarks of London there are fun ways to spend your time in the city. The Lee Valley White Water Centre is one such location. It promises to give you an action packed exercise which will get your heart racing and muscles pumping. Formerly the site was the 2012 Summer Olympics arena for white water sports. You can catch some of the action watching the professionals work their way around the course or if you are with a family there’s a fun water rafting exercise you can undertake. The centre takes special care to ensure that guests are safe and ready for the challenge. Usually a guide will accompany you in some of the rapid speed excursions. They begin with a swim test for you to familiarise the currents and the waters. Safety teams are continually on the watch so you don’t need to worry about falling into the water.
The adventure outing is tailored according to the needs and requirements of the customers. If you are not a good swimmer you can opt for a low intensity course. If you want to experience the thrill and excitement of fast moving waves they have high intensity outings available. Rafting is the best feature at the centre; the movement of rapids is something you should experience. Keep in mind that a large group will make the outing more fun. You can compete with another group when going downstream which adds to the thrill of your time spent out on the water. The facilities at the arena are also exceptional, it includes hot shower rooms, a food court and photo booths to capture the moments.
The equipment you will need for rafting is provided by the premises. The ticket covers the cost of rafting shoes, paddles, helmets and the life jackets. Since the centre is located in the northern boundary of London you will want to stay at a Central London hotel so you can have access to both the city attractions as well as the Lee Valley Centre. A London luxury hotel would be the ideal choice for tourists as they offer package deals for all the activities in the city. Metropolitan London can be recommended as it has excellent service and fabulous international cuisine.
