GOLD FOR RETAIL
The 2012 Olympic Games transformed Stratford. The legacy of the games extends well beyond the state-of-the-art sporting facilities though. As Westfield Stratford City proves.
Just 24 minutes away from Prime Place by the DLR, the centre offers over 300 well known brands, from designer boutiques such as Alfred Dunhill, Montblanc and Prada to high street favourites GAP, Ted Baker and Zara. It's also home to some 70 restaurants, a casino and a 17-screen Vue cinema.
What's more, post games, the Olympic Park is being transformed into one of the largest urban parks created in Europe for over 150 years, enriching local ecology by restoring wetland habitats populated with native species.
