History

YHA London Lee Valley was built 10 years ago this year on the site of the old open air swimming pool in Cheshunt. The town name of Cheshunt comes from the old English name for the area, Cestrehunt as recorded in the Domesday Book.

Meet the team

Rachel says: "I have worked for YHA for three and half years and I have worked at 28 hostels across the network as part of the relief manager team. I have been at YHA London Lee Valley since January 2014. Before working for YHA, I worked within the hospitality sector since I was 16, so customer service is a huge part of my working life. Lee Valley is a long way from home for me, as I grew up in the Scottish Borders, the new hostel at YHA Berwick is where it all started, this incredibly diverse, challenging but ultimately enjoyable journey... long may it continue."

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.
