With newly built restaurants and bars amongst the traditional Stratford haunts, Westfield Stratford City, one of Europe's biggest shopping centres, and the former Olympic venues now open to the public, the area provides a fantastic range of shopping, drinking, dining and fitness activities. Stratford is becoming a new go-to destination in the capital.
