Westfield Stratford City

Westfield Stratford City is Europe’s largest urban shopping and leisure destination, situated right next to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London. With hundreds of shops, not to mention three hotels, cinema, bowling alley, and the UK’s largest casino, it is a stunning new lifestyle destination. Top these off with over 70 dining concepts and a multilingual concierge team offering a wide range of services, and we think the Westfield experience is one your group will remember.

Award-winning Westfield Stratford City offers a wide range of facilities for groups. Free coach parking can be booked through the Westfield website and each booked coach will be met by one of the concierge team and escorted into the centre. Westfield Stratford City has also just launched group rates at its top restaurants for lunch, dinner and afternoon tea packages. A group travel brochure will be launched in early 2014 containing all the essential information you will need and suggested itineraries. In the meantime, for more information and to book coaches you can visit www.westfield.com/stratfordcity.

The ArcelorMittal Orbit at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

The ArcelorMittal Orbit was recognised worldwide as a dramatic emblem of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. It now stands testament to the legacy of 2012, at the heart of one of Britain’s most important regeneration projects. Located in the South Plaza area of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, its two viewing platforms boast magnificent views of the city of London and over the transformed east side of the capital.

The panoramas are breath-taking, but the experience will offer much more than just a view. Vast concave mirrors by Sir Anish Kapoor bring the sky into the structure from the outside, challenging the senses. New interactive experiences interpreting the views and its story, will delight and entertain adults and children alike.

The ArcelorMittal Orbit offers group discounts and will be launching group menus and lunch packages in the New Year. You can contact the trade sales department on 0333-600 6099 or visit www.arcelormittalorbit.com.

How Reader Club works
Our trips and tours provide group travel organisers with the chance to familiarise themselves with venues, attractions and destinations they feel may be of interest and suitable for their group. It’s a ‘try before you buy’ scenario, but please only join us if this is a viable option for your future group travel plans.
