There's every reason to buy a home in Stratford. Since the 2012 Olympic Games, the town has flourished, with the landmark shopping destination that is Westfield Stratford City plus fantastic travel options (and Crossrail will be arriving soon too).
Thanks to the legacy of the games, the area offers unrivalled sporting opportunities: the London Aquatics Centre is now open to the public, and the Lee Valley VeloPark has track cycling, road racing and mountain biking.
Thousands of new homes have either been completed, or are being finished, from the Olympic athletes' village (now East Village) with its shops and cafés, to Chobham Manor where the school is rated 'outstanding'. Many new schools are being built around the area.
Add to that new cultural and business districts, and Stratford is somewhere you really should be considering.
