The new links open up Stratford, one of London’s most dynamic and innovative business neighbourhoods, as a new employment hub for the whole of London.
Elizabeth line journey times to Stratford – one of the best-connected hubs in London.
Stratford to Heathrow
As of 21 May 2023, the final Elizabeth line extension will be complete. It adds a further increase in the number of trains during peak times and passengers will also now be able to take a train all the way from Shenfield to Heathrow Airport.
The opening of the Elizabeth line cements Stratford as the best-connected hub in London. You can now get from Paddington to Stratford in under 20 minutes.
These direct links build on the existing transport infrastructure Stratford’s known for, including the Central and Jubilee lines, as well as Overground, DLR and national rail services. It means 220 trains will leave Stratford station every hour at peak times – only London Bridge and King’s Cross/St Pancras can beat that during the peak morning period.
IQL Stratford is one of the most innovative locations for forward-thinking businesses in the UK, and the completion of the Elizabeth line has made it even easier to access. With over one million square feet of office space already let, the development’s landmark 22-storey office building – the Turing Building – will open in summer 2024. Featuring 350,000 sq ft of Grade A office space, roof terraces, event and co-working spaces and retail, it’s an exciting time with the building’s first tenant confirmed as boutique cinema brand Everyman.
The traditional employment hub of the city is rapidly moving east, with improved Elizabeth line journey times making travel easier than ever. Stratford is a mere 18 minutes from Paddington, 13 minutes from Tottenham Court Road and only 10 minutes from Farringdon – a place where east truly meets west.
With 10 brand new stations, the Elizabeth line caters for up to 200 million people a year and stops at 41 accessible stations. The full opening of the line is just part of a growing momentum at IQL Stratford; the 24-hour neighbourhood is fast becoming one of the most exciting destinations for forward-thinking businesses in the UK.
