Shopping in Stratford
It’s unforgettably eclectic
Right now, in the main thoroughfare of the Stratford Centre shopping mall, busy stalls rub shoulders with high-street stores. In a maze of walkways in the covered market area, there’s an exotic and jostling mix of cafes and salons alongside shops selling furniture, fashion and foodstuffs from all over the world.
It’s a striking, surprising, buzzing blend of activity which perfectly embodies the entrepreneurial spirit of Stratford past and present. If it’s diversity you’re after, this is where you’ll find it. With multi-storey car-parking directly above, and Stratford Station literally thirty seconds across the road, access couldn’t be easier. Hardly surprising, then, that it already attracts over 23 million visitors every year.
But if you are visiting Stratford, it willb be impossible to miss Westfield's Stratford City, Europe’s largest urban retail and leisure destination at 1.9milion square feet. It houses 300 of the world’s most famous brands in a spectacular setting, including John Lewis, Waitrose, Marks & Spencer, Apple and Prada, along with a 17-screen Vue cinema, an All Star Lanes bowling alley, an Aspers Casino, and over 60 restaurants, bars and cafes.
With the diverse shopping experience of the Stratford Centre, the historic town centre, and the new Westfield Stratford City, you truly are spolit for choice in Stratford!
