Day 1


Arrive In London Stratford

London Stratford has a lot on offer so getting an early start is best to see everything this place has to offer. Arrive at London Stratford via the Tube, DLR, or the high-speed train from London St Pancras and drop off your bags at Roomzzz London Stratford, just a 15-minute stroll from Stratford International Station.


It’s Time To Shop!

Westfield Stratford is the 4th largest shopping centre in the UK so wear your comfortable shoes! With shops such as Topshop, Mac, Flannels, Kiehls, Pull & Bear, The North Face and more, you could easily end up spending all day here!


Lunch At Westfield Stratford

If you fancy a snack midway into your shopping expedition there are several food outlets in Westfield Stratford where you can get a big meal or a little pick me up! Go for burgers at Shake Shack, try out The Real Greek for a light meze plate, or Franco Manca for pizza. There’s an option to cater for everyone’s taste so you can have a well-deserved break after your shopping!


ArcelorMittal Orbit

This potentially might not be the best option after a meal but you can’t miss out on the ArcelorMittal Orbit. This viewing platform was one of the most striking features of the 2012 London Olympic Games and now the games are over it’s still one of the main attractions of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Head up to the viewing platform by ascending in the 34-second journey in the lift and take in the panoramic views of London. It’s up to you how you then make your way back down to the bottom – there are 455 steps to ground level or you can whizz down The Slide which is an exhilarating 40-second ride to the bottom of the ArcelorMittal Orbit.

Dinner at Darkhorse

Darkhorse describes itself as a modern European restaurant and cocktail bar with Italian and Spanish influenced food. It sounds delicious, doesn’t it? Situated in London’s East Village, this is the perfect place to go for a romantic dinner. Feast on fresh burrata, potted char-grilled mackerel, grilled and breaded lemon sole, or rib eye of beef. Whatever you choose, you’ll be guaranteed a good meal! Complement with bitter chocolate tart or strawberry jelly and ricotta cream for dessert and a glass of wine or cocktail to sip alongside your meal!
