An area of northeast London, UK, situated in Newham, one of the poorest boroughs in the city. It has recently acquired some degree of fame as the location of the main Olympic Stadium for London 2012, leading to it becoming known as the "Olympic Borough". The problem with this is that it has led to the whole area being a perpetually unfinished mess of roadworks and chewing gum, with the glitz and glamour of Westfield and the Stadium separated by a literal wall of shops from the grimy residential areas full of kebab houses, flower shops and knife crime. In short, a complete and utter mess. To be avoided if at all possible - unless you live there, in which case you probably don't have enough money to leave.
Since the Olympic building projects got underway I've found it increasingly difficult to leave my house, since I live in Stratford.

Def. 1 Stratford is a pretty little town at least 45 minutes from anything useful. Here you can find the festival theatre, where we put on shakespearean plays and musicals - we're world renowned for it! You can also find - um - uh- let's see- we're the pork capital of ontario!
Def. 2 Hell for unique, interesting, non-drinking/punky teenagers.
Darling, let's visit scenic Stratford, which pretends to be cultured when it's really just another dying farm town!

Where the men are men and the woman are too. You’ll be lucky if you find somebody with teeth and everybody’s dating their cousin.
Girl 1: your moms only 30 why doesn’t she have any teeth?
Girl 2: she grew up in Stratford, my grandpas my cousin too
