Why not explore the nearby areas of Stratford, West Ham, Bow, Maryland, Victoria Park, Plaistow, Upton, Homerton, Leyton and Forest Gate

"Maryland is one of the few places to be named after its counterpart in the US, rather than the other way around. The land was bought by a merchant returning from Maryland in the colonies."

The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has been a fantastic addition to Stratford, putting our area on the map!
