Make a holiday apartment in Stratford your home away from home

Stratford gained worldwide publicity during the 2012 London Olympic Games: undergoing a complete transformation in preparation, this East London neighbourhood soon became one of the most modern and well-connected in the capital. Today, estates have been replaced by towering high-rise developments, modern shopping centres, and beautiful parkland, so there are plenty of new things to see and do, and a centrally located Stratford holiday apartment is the perfect base for exploring the area. Whether visiting for shopping, sightseeing, or business reasons, rail, underground, and light rail connections mean that those who choose to stay in Stratford apartments are never far away from the delights of Central London. And, because the area has been the subject of much redevelopment, Stratford holiday apartments tend to be very new, offering state-of-the-art appliances, and amenities such as a fitness centre, pool, and concierge.

Things to do

-Shopping: Westfield Stratford City was opened in the run up to the Olympic Games, and is now the third-largest shopping centre in England. The enormous mall includes numerous retail stores including anchors Marks and Spencer, John Lewis, and Waitrose, as well as restaurants, cafés, bars, a casino, and a cinema. It’s conveniently open seven days a week, and is within easy walking distance from many modern holiday apartments in Stratford.

-Attractions: The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park was recently reopened to the public and now features plenty of green space, a café, and a play area for children. The Olympic Stadium has been slated to host several major sporting events annually, as have several of the other sporting venues within the park. The park itself also hosts a multitude of arts and culture events throughout the year.

-Theatre: The Theatre Royal Stratford East is located right in the centre of Stratford and has been a centre for arts and culture since it first opened in 1884. The interior of the theatre has retained its grand Victorian elegance, but now features contemporary stage shows performed by established actors and up-and-coming youths. Several shows and a number of performers from here have made their way to the West End, as the old theatre has proven a hot bed of theatrical talent.

-Family fun: The Discover Children’s Story Centre is a great place for kids and their parents to visit in Stratford. In an effort to get kids excited about books and improve literacy, the centre focuses on bringing books to life through a series of interactive displays and games. The centre is open six days a week and hosts a number of special events throughout the year.

-Nearby sights: The Docklands and Greenwich are both just a few minutes away from Stratford thanks to the fast and efficient Docklands Light Railway (DLR) system. The Docklands currently represents London’s glittering new financial centre, but still pays homage to its history as a maritime powerhouse. Further south in Greenwich is the Royal Observatory, Greenwich Market, and the National Maritime Museum.

 

Weather in Stratford

Temperatures in Stratford do not differ from the rest of London. July and August are typically the hottest months of the year with high temperatures reaching the mid-20s. The weather chills significantly beginning in October and remains below 10°C until March or April. Light rain is common throughout the year and Stratford receives an average of 50mm of rain each month.

Travel to Stratford

Stratford is very well connected. Its rail station, close to Westfield and many Stratford holiday apartments, connects visitors to other major rail stations across Britain. If flying into London, Stratford can be reached by taking the London Underground or Docklands Light Rail Service (DLR). Driving is also an option and nearly all of the modern holiday apartments in Stratford come with a parking space.

                                      Fantastic place to stay. Highly recommended

                                      Beautiful house and owner Greta couldn't have done any more for us. Excellent communication with owner prior to stay and very helpful while we were there. House is in an excellent location, handy for events at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park stadium. Everything we needed was provided for us, and we had a very enjoyable stay here. Would highly recommend this property.

                                      This is by far the most complete home out of all the HomeAway places I've stayed at before. I love cooking so opening the cabinets and finding everything one could ever need from utensils to condiments was really nice! Place is fabulous! Well decorated and has everything one could ever need. Only negative point in my opinion was the stairs connecting the owners apartment upstairs to the basement apartment where I was. There is no door but curtains hung on a rod to separate both places. The owner lives upstairs and I could hear them clearly which made me uncomfortable as I assume they could hear me easily as well. Other than that I loved everything about it and Dustin the owner is fantastic! Really nice, funny, helpful, well educated, polite etc. Thank you D for having me! Your place is fabulous! :)
