London has always been a ‘city of perpetual works’ but postcodes E15 and E20 really stand out. In fact, they have almost totally transformed over the last decade. They’ve become a magnet for people across the world, so we’re going to show you the best places to live in Stratford. The 2012 London Olympics fundamentally transformed this area of east London, and the regeneration was a central part of the bid, the games and the legacy. Part of the newly developed portion even got a new postcode. E20 had hitherto only existed as a fictional postcode for Walford, the location of the hit British TV series Eastenders – life imitating art!
But where are the best places to live in Stratford? The best way to find out is by asking the people who already live there, and we did exactly that! Every day we speak to hundreds of locals across the capital. We ask what they think not only about their area but also their specific homes. Here are the answers.
