I like the Lea Valley arena -- at least as it was in the early years of this millennium (jeez, that sounds older than it is) -- but I haven't seen it for many years. It has lots of different settings, some unusual shooting positions, and you get to shoot in many differentl directions. Many lanes are set out in separate areas surrounded by high banks. The wind can really screw you there.
It used to be the venue for the Hertfordshire 100 - a grueling shoot (100 targets in one day). The course would include a couple unusual targets, such as the infamous 60+ yards downhill, and the submarine in the tower that was more than 45 degrees uphill.
Edit: in winter, it's could probably be quite grim, as there isn't much cover from the wind.
