Stratford has also been known through the ages as Stratford Langthrone. This is a city that is found in the London Borough of Newham, which is located in East London. The area is perhaps most well known today because it will be the sight of the 2012 Summer Olympics. Stratford has been identified as one of the 35 major centers in the Greater London area.
The interesting thing about Stratford is that it is an old market town that was expanded in the 1960’s due to an agreement between London County Council and Newham County Council. The expansion was done quickly to help with the overflow of residents from the London area. Today the area is flourishing with a very low rate of unemployment and an above average median income and standard of living. Prescription drug manufacturing, IT, communications, insurance, and electronics are some of the bigger industries located in Stratford.
The town has many interesting things to see and do such as the Aquadrome swimming pool, an ice rink, bowling alley, bingo club, and ten screen movie theatres. For those that like history, the Milestones Museum should be considered a must see while in Stratford. There are also many different sports leagues and social groups that residents can join and tourists can enjoy watching from time to time. While the town is rather small in geographical area and population, there is a lot to see and do when in the area. Those who attend the areas university level schools often find that the night life and social possibilities more than make up for the smaller size of the town because they are never without something fun and exciting to do.
