Stratford benefits from excellent transport connections – being served by both Stratford Regional – a major interchange – and Stratford International, which hosts high speed services between St Pancras and Kent. In addition to underground services and its own bus station, Stratford features extensive cycling routes, including Quietway 6, National Cycle Route 1 and Quietway 22.

Shopping in Stratford

The area boasts two large shopping centres, with Westfield Stratford City and Stratford Shopping Centre. The Westfield Centre was developed as part of Stratford’s regeneration scheme and opened in 2011. In addition to a wide array of shops, the centre has a cinema and casino – meaning there is plenty to keep you occupied during a shopping trip out between business appointments.

Things to do in Stratford

A lasting legacy in Stratford is the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park which itself contains many sights and venues. The ArcelorMittal Orbit observation tower is not only Britain’s largest piece of public art, it also allows for splendid views across the region and beyond, and even features a slide! The park host many major sporting events, such as the Rugby World Cup, Major League Baseball and many more. With so much to see and learn at the park, we recommend taking a tour. You can take a walking tour or, for a more relaxing experience, take a leisurely park boat tour through the beautiful surroundings.
