London has always been a ‘city of perpetual works’ but postcodes E15 and E20 really stand out. In fact, they have almost totally transformed over the last decade. They’ve become a magnet for people across the world, so we’re going to show you the best places to live in Stratford. The 2012 London Olympics fundamentally transformed this area of east London, and the regeneration was a central part of the bid, the games and the legacy. Part of the newly developed portion even got a new postcode. E20 had hitherto only existed as a fictional postcode for Walford, the location of the hit British TV series Eastenders – life imitating art!
