Stratford Central, London: living in the city, on a new level
London is a metropolis in constant transformation and Stratford fully reflects this peculiarity. Placed in East London and exceptionally well-linked with the city centre and Stansted Airport (8 minutes to Liverpool St and roughly 30 minutes to Stansted Airport): this is one of the many reasons it hosted the Olympic Games in 2012. Today it hosts one of the biggest and more charming parks in London, where it is pleasant to walk or bike, jog and enjoy more than 25 sports – among the facilities, an aquatic arena (one of the most spectacular in the whole world), the Stadium and the Velodrome. The new park also offers special events every year, such as shows and concerts.
This area has a great potential as it is the home of university campuses and the Cultural Quarter with its art galleries, theatres, bars and bistros – among them, the Theatre Royal Stratford East and Stratford Circus. The neighbourhood of International lifestyle is lively and cosmopolitan also thanks to the new project of urban design, created by the greatest architectural studies in the world, and to the Westfield Stratford City shopping centre that hosts more than 300 shops and boutiques, 70 bars and restaurants, entertainment (such as a big casino, bowling, cinema 4K – 3D).
Last but not least, work and business: in this location find their headquarters more than 600 companies that have shares in London stock market and 250 banks that qualify the place as a centre for the financial system of London and the world.
