What lies hidden in Barking and Dagenham?

Sitting nicely in East London is the Borough of Barking and Dagenham. With some rather reasonable house prices as well as a number of sights to see and things to do, the area can’t be ignored when you are searching around for properties. By taking the time to admire what the location has to offer, you too can see why people opt to settle here.

Barking Town Square acts as the centre of the area’s regeneration endeavours. Since being completed in 2007, the brightly-coloured and hyper-modern development has housed an arboretum, a library, a gallery, and a number of new homes for residents. The Square is often utilised for outdoor events and the development efforts won several architectural awards, while being shortlisted for three additional ones.

While the Borough possesses a single theatre, it has done an astounding job of standing on its own. The Broadway Theatre has a diverse programme, including dance, comedy, plays, talks and entertainment for younger audiences too. One of the most wonderful things it is that it mixes together professional performances with those put together by the community groups.

Hiding in Upney is a rather stunning walled garden, inside which is Eastbury Manor House. The manor was completed in the 1570s and has hardly been altered in any way since, making it an incredible, authentic historical site. In today’s day and age it’s a National Trust structure, containing Stuart-era art pieces, a turret and an exhibition on what life was like in the manor.
