Westfield Stratford City, London

3.8
#18 of 275 in Shopping in London
With a total retail floor area of 175,000 sq m (1.9 million sq ft), Westfield Stratford City stands as one of the largest urban shopping centers in Europe, and the third largest shopping center in the UK. With over 300 stores and over 70 places to eat, a movie theater with 17 screens, and a 24-hour casino, the mall contains plenty of diversions. The parking lot offers 5,000 secure spaces, but there are plentiful public transport options if you'd prefer not to drive. The mall is located adjacent to the Olympic Park, so you combine your visit with a tour of the site of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. A visit to Westfield Stratford City represents just the start of the adventure when you use our London travel itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

    I had to walk through the Westfield shopping centre, whenever I had to go to the Olympic stadium. One time, I arrived very early and sat on a no smoking bench. I noticed there were four security guard...  more »

    Much to see, shopping, food, special activities for children, the whole family is busy and at the end you can eat well in one of the numerous restaurants.

    Very large and busy place but with the bonus that on the 5th floor of John Lewis's is a viewing platform of the Olympic village that is quickly transforming from what it was at the London Olympic to w...  more »

  • We love it here. I love the Lego store and my wife likes all the clothes shops. The food selection is incredible, we chose the Indian street food stool on the top floor. It's delicious :)
  • Never been to such a large shopping centre before in the UK. Loved the varied shops and even car showrooms. Stopped by Mercedes showroom and tried my hand at the F1 simulator. Quality. If you have time for a snack try the cinnamon Pretzel at Mr Pretzels on the Ground floor. Also an amazing Malaysian food place which I have reviewed separately. Both outdoor and indoor food and also an Ikea order and collection which is also very handy. Will be back even if it's just to try the Potbelly sandwich. Great place.
  • Gargantuan Cathedral of retail therapy. Dizzying array of shops, food outlets and a cinema to boot! Very well laid out and easy to traverse. The car park is also outstanding and very, very reasonable. Especially if you are considering onward travel into the capital.
  • Great array of shops. Easy to move through. Try not to go on crowded days, as it gets really busy. But great food choices and cinema too. Of and bars and coffee shops
  • It feels surprisingly cramped for such a new shopping centre. Most of the shops are smallish so they fit a huge number of different places there. So there variety isn't an issue. The restaurants are quite good and you have a lot of choice. It's a tough place to be in or near when there's a major event going on at the London Stadium. Not that everyone has a choice, but I find London Westfield in Shepherd's Bush to be a better option for shopping and entertainment.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
