Pre-2012 London Olympics, Stratford was, for many, just a place where the Jubilee line terminated. But the Games put this East London district well and truly on the map. Modern residential developments (with a plethora of amenities) have been multiplying here ever since. Where are the best places to live in Stratford?

We were one of the first to move here and overall, we have a great place to live. It’s very warm in the winter, feels very safe and the park is beautiful. The road I live in is cleaned regularly. I have great neighbours, everyone in the road is pleasant and friendly. We enjoy being able to walk to a decent coffee shop and Hackney marshes is also lovely and on our doorstep. It’s easy to get into Central London but for me, I like the proximity to the London overground, Kew gardens and Richmond are 45 minutes away.
Please review your development:
The apartment is really well designed, spacious, light and remarkably, for a new build, it has lots of storage.
Facilities locally are excellent, shops, good restaurants, doctor and dentist.
L and Q as managing agents are patchy in response and the service charges have been farcical with lots of changes and confusion. The residents association are active and brilliant. Overall, a great place to live.
