Stratford goes digital with its own app

Stratford leapt head first into the digital age on Tuesday with the launch of its own app at Stratford Circus.

Created by Stratford Renaissance Partnership and Newham Council in collaboration with London & Partners, the free Visit Stratford app has over 500 listings for all there is to see and do in Stratford.

Mayor of Newham, Sir Robin Wales, said: “Stratford is set to become one of the most thriving parts of London with the development of the Olympic Park, Europe’s largest urban shopping centre at Westfield Stratford City and our array of arts, creative and cultural industries combining to create a vibrant and successful business, leisure and tourism destination.

“This new digital technology will help showcase the many things we have on offer to shoppers, tourists and visitors and help bring continued economic benefits to the local area.”

Cathy Low, project director of Stratford Renaissance Partnership, said: “As well as a guide to the area, the app offers a glimpse into Stratford’s future - if you think Stratford’s transformation is impressive now, just wait until you see what is coming.”

Aimed at the thousands of visitors pouring into Stratford this summer, the app features an interactive map, audio guide, travel information, and digital postcards.

The Visit Stratford app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store, Google Play, or from
