Built in time for the 2012 London Olympics, Westfield Stratford is the biggest urban shopping centre in the EU. Inside it’s packed with shopping and entertainment. All the big brands line the walkways, including some rarer outlets from far away countries, and pop-up shops that vary on a seasonal basis.
There’s entertainment too – a cinema, various bars and restaurants, a bowling alley and a 24-hour casino on the top floor which affords views of the Olympic Stadium. Entertainment is usually found on The Street, the outdoor portion of the centre. Live bands play and entertainers roam around, and you can find seasonal fun such as ice-rinks in the winter months.
Westfield Stratford City certainly has that shop-til-you-drop vibe, and you can do much more besides.
