The 2012 Olympics, rejuvenated London’s Stratford, and the shops and restaurants in the area are mostly a mix of East End heritage and slick modern chains. Shopping at the vast Westfield Centre and exploring the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park makes for hungry work, so we’ve listed best places to stop and refuel here.

Olympic Stadium and Orbit

In the shadow of the magnificent looping Arcelor Mittal Orbit structure created by Sir Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond, East Twenty Bar and Kitchen is perfect for a light lunch with a view.

Rooftop Film Club Bussey Building

Dar Marrakech

Dar Marrakech is a short stroll from the Stratford Centre arcade, with its recently opened Rooftop Film Club, making it ideal as a post-film dining experience. As you step into the Moroccan/Lebanese restaurant, decorated chaotically with North African carpets, cushions, trinkets and lanterns you’ll feel a world away from the high street.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
