Hackney Wick is an east London station in Travelcard Zone 2. It opened in 1980 on an old line that had originally served the former Victoria Park station, which closed in 1943. Situated just 100m to the west of the Olympic Park, Hackney Wick saw heavy passenger traffic during the London 2012 Olympics, although westbound trains were not allowed to stop at the station due to fears of overcrowding. Today it's a busy London Overground station, offering trains towards Highbury, Camden Road, Willesden and Clapham Junction. Historically, Hackney Wick was a large industrial area, but in recent years it has become a hub for London's young creative community, with more studios per square mile than any other place in Europe. For something a little more mainstream, Westfield Stratford City, the largest shopping centre in Europe, is a ten-minute walk away - the route takes you over the River Lea and past the London Aquatics Centre, designed by award-winning architect Zaha Hadid.
