Service description:
Northampton Active was the UK’s first pumped, artificial whitewater course. Three pumps control the flow of water down the 300-metre whitewater course allowing the centre to alter the course’s difficulty and the skill levels required to paddle it.

The centre has changing rooms and showering facilities, a cafeteria, a lift, and rooms suitable for both social events and conference bookings. It has ample onsite parking for customers and is wheelchair accessible throughout.

The centre is open to anyone aged 7 years-old and above, but you must be aged at least 12 years-old to take part in whitewater rafting.
