This half term is a great time to discover the family-friendly offer at East Village, the former London 2012 Athletes’ Village. We have a huge range of homes to suit the needs of families and sharers, just a stone’s throw from state of the art facilities like Chobham Academy, the Sir Ludwig Guttmann Health and Wellbeing Centre and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, all of which means that more and more families are waking up to all that is on offer at London’s newest neighbourhood.
This May half term, there is a full programme of family-friendly events in and around the E20 postcode for our residents and visitors.
Homes perfect for families
Our homes offers a broad range of properties with different room configurations to meet the varying needs of families. A unique combination of no fees, rent increases in line with the Consumer Prices Index and the security of long term tenancies, means there is less hassle and more time to be getting on with the important aspects of family life. All homes are also built around landscaped private courtyard areas for families to enjoy and relax in.
Outstanding Educational and Health Facilities
East Village is home to Chobham Academy, a world-class new education campus with 1,800 students from ages 3-18. Families moving to East Village in the new E20 postcode get priority places at the school, which is run by the Harris Federation, a charity with a long and outstanding track record in education. Also based in the neighbourhood is the Sir Ludwig Guttmann Health and Wellbeing Centre, one of the UK’s largest NHS non-hospital facilities, providing GP and healthcare services to residents and the surrounding area.
Parklands and open space for children to enjoy
East Village is set in 67 acres of green space – the equivalent size to St James’s Park – with our homes sitting alongside parklands, play areas, wild flower meadows, wetlands and garden areas perfect for families to enjoy.
World-class sports, leisure and retail facilities on your doorstep
With Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the Westfield Stratford City shopping centre, on our doorstep residents have world-class sports, leisure and entertainment facilities just a stone’s throw away. Families moving to East Village can make the London Aquatics Centre their local swimming pool and the Lee Valley VeloPark their local cycle park.
May Half Term Treats
For a fun day out this May half term, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park andDiscover Children’s Story Centre in Stratford are offering a variety of children’s activities for East Village residents and visitors, young and old, to enjoy. With everything from kite making workshops and a story-reading session with author of ‘Timmy Failure’, Stephan Pastis, at Discover Children’s Story Centre, to boat tours and a ‘Where’s Wally?’ themed story trail at the ArcelorMittal Orbit in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, there is lots to keep the kids entertained during the break.
