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 Today, estates have been replaced by towering high-rise developments, modern shopping centres, and beautiful parkland, so there are plenty of new things to see and do, and a centrally located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.

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.

Driving is also an option and nearly all of the modern holiday apartments in Stratford come with a parking space.

Spacious apartment--EZ transportation and swimming

5 of 5
Spacious 2 bed 2 bathroom apartment. Perfect for us as I needed to travel out of multiple train stations to other areas of the UK, and also to different areas in the suburbs of London. Also, having the Olympic swimming center a 5 minute walk from the front door is such a luxury--it so difficult typically to stay fit when on travel, but with the pool so close and easy to use, this makes this apartment perfect.

Best decision for our vacation

5 of 5
This is better than getting an hotel in London. We were able to relax more and just enjoy our vacation. The apartment was clean and very quiet. The area is beautiful especially at night with the skylines. As described, it is about 10 mins walk to the mall and Tesco is just down the street. Our 2 year old enjoyed having the space to run around and play. We will definitely recommend this and will book with Andrew again next time we are in London.
