Lee Valley Boat Centre

What a great morning we had at the Lee Valley Boat Centre. Apparently in a week you can cruise into London on one of their narrow boats however today we stuck with an hour and hired an electric ‘pleasure craft’.

After a couple of minutes instruction we were off, gently floating up the river. It wasn’t long before Freddie took the wheel and began steering the boat, right hand down we continued in tight circles for quite a few minutes... once we had prized his little fingers we were off again, nosing at the houses on the river bank and feeding any ducks brave enough to venture close to our boat. Not the cheapest morning out but worth the visit on occasions. For an hour we paid £17 and our boat would have taken 4 adults. All children are given life jackets to wear.

There are lots of different boats to hire, pedalos, passenger boats, day boats, 4, 5 and 7 seater electric boats, rowing boats and chalets. So whatever age your little ones are there is a boat to suit!

If you live in London it’s an easy train ride from Liverpool Street to Broxbourne station and the Boat Centre is just a few minutes walk.
