Being one of the oldest stations in London, Stratford Station is situated in Greater London area and it was opened for the first time on 20 June 1839 by the Eastern Counties Railway. The station has many facilities, including customer help point or ticket machines, but unfortunately, it does not have a car parking lot. The station is also holding a record among the other stations for having at one time four systems of electrification in use. But now only three of them are active. Stratford Station serves the following train lines: Central Line, London Overground, National Rail, Docklands Light Railway and the Jubilee Line. Nearby this station is to be found one of the largest urban shopping centers in Europe. Actually, by size, it is the largest urban shopping centre among the countries that are part of the European Union.
The Royal Mail gave the park and Stratford City the postcode E20, which had previously only appeared in the television soap opera EastEnders for the fictional suburb of Walford. The site is adjacent to both the existing Stratford Regional Station and the new Stratford International Station. After 2012, when the Olimpic Games were held in London, Stratford Station became one of the busiest stations in London, more exactly the thirteenth busiest station in London and the twentieth busiest station in the United Kingdom.
