Westfield Stratford City
Westfield Stratford City, one of the biggest shopping malls in London, is located next to the Olympic part built for the 2012 Olympics. Its vast selection of stored includes stores for many of the well-known brands.
The shopping centre has over 300 shops, including 80 restaurants/food places, located in indoor and outdoor areas. Both John Lewis and Marks and Spencer have a department store there, and several clothing brands have a shop there, for example, Boss, COS, Gant, Vans, Karen Mille and & Other Stories. There are also shops for sporting goods, for example, an Adidas store.
There are four separate areas for getting food, Great Eastern Market, World Food Court, Fast Food Court and The Street & Chestnut Plaza, the last one located outside. The outside area is formed as a block of streets aligned with shops, restaurants and cafes. There are some burger places, for example, the American chains Shake Shack and Five Guys have a shop in the centre. Chicago Rib Shack offers American style feed and specialises indeed in ribs. Two good options for a sweet tooth, Doughnut Time and Lola's Cupcakes are worth checking out.
The easiest way to get to Stratford is to take the tube, Central or Jubilee lines. The tube stations are right next to the shopping centre. Another good option is to use the DLR if coming from an area served by DLR.
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is located a couple of minutes away from the the shopping centre. The path to the park starts from the outside area of the mall.
