Getting to Stratford
It’s excellently connected
Stratford is about as connected as it gets. Get here quickly and efficiently from all four points of the compass using superfast, frequent connections via the Jubilee and Central lines, the London Overground, the Docklands Light Railway, and national rail connections.
On the tube, Liverpool Street’s nine minutes away, Oxford Circus just ten minutes more, and a high speed bullet train will also take you from Stratford to St Pancras in just seven minutes.
Fly into London City Airport (which serves over 30 destinations offering international connections to hundreds more) and you can be here in Stratford in just fourteen minutes on the DLR. Stansted, Heathrow and Gatwick airports are all just over an hour away.
There are even better links to come, with Crossrail already under construction – linking Stratford directly to Maidenhead and Heathrow in the west through new twin-bore 21 km tunnels under central London, and to Shenfield and Abbey Wood further east.
In the future trains are likely to link directly to the continent from the £210m Stratford International Station - with destinations including Paris, Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Cologne under discussion.
With the development of High Speed 2, the UK Government's project to build a new high speed line linking London with UK cities, it will also become possible to run direct trains from Stratford to Birmingham, Manchester and Scotland - making Stratford even better connected!
