iFratelli

Traditional fish and chips and authentic pizza served in this Italian family-run takeaway.

Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

The perfect place to play outdoor games with kids or friends, have a romantic picnic or for a good cardio workout - amazing scenery of both nature and modern architecture.

The ArcelorMittal Orbit

Britain's largest piece of art, you can buy tickets to go up and view London from the top, as well as abseil down and hire it out for private events.

MILKMADE

Fantastic addition to the multitude of independent stores and restaurants in E20, an area that is fast becoming the snazziest place in East London. You won't regret dropping in for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.

London Aquatics Centre

London Aquatics Centre is the most technologically advanced and stunning swimming facility in the world and part of the 2012 London Olympic legacy.

Neighbourhood

A fashionable pub serving craft beers and food from breakfast through to dinner.

Sawmill Cafe

Great cakes and coffee.

Print House

A Shorditch-y looking bar on Stratford's High Street next to the water. If you want to have a drink with friends where you can actually hear them talk, this is the place!

Stoney Hill

Pound for pound the best Caribbean food in the area and great value for money!

Tredegar Square

Beautiful green space in zone 2.

ArcelorMittal Orbit Slide

On the doorstep of Victoria Park and Stratford within the Olympic Park - the world's tallest tunnel slide. Not your average Helter Skelter and not for the faint hearted!

As well as an arena for sporting events, you can use the gym facilities too.

Goldstar Dry Cleaners

The masters of getting any stain out and they have always got a trick or two up their sleeve to get them out. 5 shirts for £7.50 is a bargain - and they will even do same day cleaning for the same price!

Chrisp Street Market

Poplar's vibrant pedestrianised market and one of a few places in London where you can buy a baguette and then a mop in under a minute!
