New Eurostar Gateway and Olympic centre, Stratford was once a village in a rural Essex of mills and monasteries, then transformed into London's industrial workshop and centre of radical politics. See where London's first Labour Member of Parliament made his first London speeches. Sir Henry Irving, Ellen Terry and Barbara Windsor have all acted in Stratford, home to one of London's most beautiful theatres. Finish your tour with a visit to Westfield, London’s largest shopping centre.
