Westfield in Stratford is a stone's throw away from our Stratford and USS campuses. Here you can go bowling, check out the latest movies in the cinema or shop from high street brands. There are restaurants aplenty, children's play areas, bookstores and large department stores like Marks & Spencer and John Lewis.

Hackney Walk

Hackney Walk nods to the area's strong fashion heritage. At the beginning of the 20th century more than 15,000 people were employed producing clothes and footwear in Hackney's factories. Nowadays the industry has changed but you can still find Burberry's old factory right by Hackney Walk and although it no longer produces apparel for the fashion brand you can find a bunch of products at factory outlet prices. You can also find Nike and Pringle outlet stores as well as a variety of small indie brands at affordable prices.
