"Until 2010, Greenford was the only station on the Underground network with an escalator up to platform level. There is now a small escalator in the central line part of Stratford Station."

Stratford has become a shopping destination after the construction of the Westfield shopping centre.

Simon Hart

The continued regeneration of the East of London since the Olympic games make Stratford a clever choice for homeowners wanting to purchase in the right spot, at the right time...

What locals say about Forest Gate

  1. Lovely community spirit, small village feel in the big city!

  2. Green Street is the buzzing multicultural heart of Forest Gate. Great fun to live here, with excellent transport links. I have an apartment with my own garden at an affordable price. Love it!

  3. A great place to live. Affordable Victorian properties and Wanstead Flats on your doorstep. Some decent coffee shops opening on Woodgrange Road. Definitely an area on the up!

  4. Reasonably priced housing in a great location only 13 minutes by train from Liverpool Street. The green spaces of Wanstead Flats are great for running and walking and Stratford for shopping, cinema, restaurants etc. is only a 15 minute walk. The high street is improving slowly and with Crossrail on the way, it can only get better.
