Stratford is an area located in East London, being part of the borough of Newham. The station is only about 6 miles away from the London Central area. Also, its proximity to the Olympic Stadium made it the arrival point for many visitors and guests. The name Statford is probably coming from two words: street and ford. It is said that the area where the Olympic Games were held was a marshy one. Therefore, the Romans saw the need of building a pathway for travelers and also a Ford, known as the Old Ford. This construction made Stratford an important road junction and opened the path to a continuous development.
If we take a look of what Stratford became today we will definitely see, in the “front row” the Olympic Park, where 17 of the 26 Olympic sports took place, on the Olympic Stadium, Aquatics Centre, Velodrome and Basketball Arena. In 2012 and since then, Stratford was and will remain London’s sport heaven, but besides this, recently the area became the home of Westfield Stratford City, an amazing shopping center. Its scale is so large, that a new postcode was introduced only for this “shopping city”, with more than 300 shops, one independent cinema, restaurants and bars.
