A Taxi Drivers Guide to London Stratford

This East London neighbourhood is one of the most vibrant and desirable places to visit in London, with snazzy brunch spots, generous amounts of shopping facilities, and the incredible Olympic Park Leisure Centre.

Stratford is also only a 20-minute car ride away from the ultra-trendy streets of Shoreditch.

Best known for housing the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Stratford is a tourist hotspot that’s always humming. The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park includes some of the UK’s most iconic sports venues and is home to one of the Capital’s award-winning parklands and nature reserves. You’ll get breathtaking views of London from the ArcelorMittal Orbit observation tower, or if you’re looking for a rush of adrenaline, you can ride the slide or abseil the descent of the UK’s highest freefall abseil.

In this up-and-coming corner of East London, you’ll find a brilliant selection of independent cafes, bars and restaurants. From the finest artisan foods and authentic Neapolitan Pizzas to multi-award-winning gelato. You can enjoy these delicacies in the East Village, which sits next to Europe’s largest urban shopping centre, Westfield Stratford City.

It’s the perfect place for shoppers, sports lovers and socialites, with around 250 indoor and outdoor shops, including high street fashion favourites like Zara and Levi’s, plus lifestyle retailers such as John Lewis and M&S. There are around 70 places to eat and drink. Besides the ultimate shopping experience, Westfield Stratford City also offers brilliant leisure activities like luxury bowling at All Star Lanes and the latest films at one of Vue Cinema’s 17 all-digital screens.
