Stratford, a stone’s throw from vibrant Hackney, has only grown in popularity since its recent face-lift, and is home to many iconic and exciting cultural and tourist attractions. Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is the ideal place to head for a stroll, while the iconic red twisted sculpture entitled the ArcelorMittal Orbit provides unparalleled views of the area (and a giant slide for those thrill-seekers!). Or, head over to Westfield Shopping Centre, one of the largest in Europe, to browse a selection of its 350 stores.
Once all of the shopping and sightseeing tires you out, it would be remiss not to check out some of the hundreds of restaurants in Stratford, with something for everyone on offer. If you’re looking for an intimate and high-class dining experience for a special occasion, there are a number of unpretentious fine-dining eateries that serve up quality food without pomp. If you want a more laid-back and casual place to dine, Stratford is home to many gastropubs, perfect for a classic Sunday lunch, with an elevated twist, to enjoy with the whole family. Whatever the occasion - a birthday, a date, a corporate event, or just because - Stratford surely has a restaurant for you. Remember, you can use our filters to help refine your hunt.
