About YHA London Lee Valley

It's difficult to believe that this slice of peaceful countryside is just a 25 minute train ride from the centre of London, but it is! YHA London Lee Valley makes a great base for exploring the city if you want to be able to escape the action at the end of the day. Buying a travel pass into London includes all your travel on the tube once you get there.

If you live in London, YHA London Lee Valley is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, without the need to travel too far.

The waterside log cabins provide you with a self-contained hostel experience - each one has their own TV, lounge area and kitchenette as well as the bedrooms, which are all en-suite, perfect for a family holiday.

The Youth Hostel provides an eco holiday and an activity break all-in-one and you can try your hand at sailing, kayaking or canoeing at the nearby watersports centre. Caving and climbing are also available if booked in advance and this budget accommodation is also in an excellent location for cycling, bird watching and orienteering.

Manager recommends

  • If you are looking to embrace the countryside, why not take a walk around the 10,000 acre Lee Valley Country Park or hire a bike from nearby and see the park on two wheels! It's also worth heading down the canal to the White Water Rafting Centre where the Olympic water sports took place, you really feel like you are in another part of the country, not just 30 minutes from the heart of London. Also, only 20 minutes away is the Olympic Park and Shopping Centre. Lee Valley really has the best of both worlds.
