Conduct a Self-Led Residential
Theatre Bolt on - Take in a shower with our Theatre workshop. If you’re thinking about seeing a show whilst staying at our London hostels we can recommend a great way to make the event a little more special.
YHA London Lee Valley is more than just a place to stay before heading to London for the day; there are plenty of great activities to get the pulse racing without the need to travel far, or even beyond next door! Herts Young Mariners Base (HYMB) is an outdoor centre with over 50 years of experience delivering a range of water based and adventurous activities such as canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, raft building, climbing, fencing, bush craft and more. Their centre is situated a mere minutes’ walk from the hostel and makes a great option for schools and groups wanting to add adventure to their residential. If that’s not enough you can also access the Lee Valley White Water Rafting centre (as used in the 2012 Olympic Games) who provide a range of activities for children 8+, and main White Water rafting for people aged 14 and over.
Adjacent to the hostel is access to Lee Valley County Park and over 10,000 acres of woodland, park spaces, canal tow paths and walking routes.

We are YHA.
We transform young lives forever through travel and real adventure.
Because where you go changes who you become.
To show how important travel and adventure is, we’ve taken it away from someone who depends on it… and given it to children who’ve been missing out.
