Once home of the London 2012 Olympics, there’s a whole lot to see and do in East London. Stratford Station perfectly positions you to visit Westfield, Stratford City - the largest urban shopping centre in London – or the iconic O2 Arena.

Getting to and from Stansted Airport via Stratford (East London) takes around 60 minutes. To get to the airport, it’s a quick 13 minute tube to Tottenham Hale and then a 36 minutes journey to the airport.

For those landing in the UK and looking to head into London, Stratford’s a great location to aim for. With great connections via the Central and Jubilee lines, the quick journey into the city is stress-free.

Thanks to a multi-billion-pound regeneration in the 1980s, this part of East London has become one of the city’s most exclusive areas.
