Stratford has seen an abundance of change in a short time. The corner stone of the East end it now truly unites what was once a typical east end town with the rest of the city and even Europe Thanks to it's unrivalled transport connections. However, despite the growth of mega residential towers attracting the city slicker you know you'll have a neighbour who can point you to a market trader selling fresh produce at compassionate prices. Thus, although Stratford has attracted wealth through enormous investment you know the local traders at the Stratford old centre will always look after the old and new residents and that's what makes Stratford truly warm and a place to embrace diversity at its finest.
Stratford is a vibrant and diverse place to live. With the Westfield shopping centre on your door step, the old Stratford Shopping Centre just across the way from that, and Stratford Highest a couple of minutes walk from there, there is nothing that you can't find in Stratford. And what's not to love about living where the Olympics was held?! Great travel connections into and out of Central London. Stratford is fast becoming a desirable place to live in London.

Stratford is a district in northeast London and part of the London Borough of Newham. It is located 6 miles (9.7 km) east northeast of Charing Cross. As part of the growth of London in the late 19th century, Stratford significantly expanded and increased in population, becoming the centre of administration of the Borough of West Ham in 1886 and it has formed part of Greater London since 1965. The more recent economic history is underpinned by a move away from railway works and heavy industry towards becoming a significant commercial and cultural centre. Stratford is adjacent to the London Olympic Park and is currently experiencing regeneration and expansion linked to the 2012 Summer Olympics.
