Barking Riverside is one of Europe’s largest and most exciting residential developments, providing East London with thousands of new homes.

Benefitting from a unique location directly on the banks of the River Thames, Barking Riverside is comprised of 443 acres of land – an area as large as Hyde Park – on a brownfield site formerly occupied by the iconic Barking Power Station. Connected to central London via the recently extended Overground and River bus services, Barking Riverside is ideal for those who want fast and easy access to London as well as an abundance of green and blue spaces.

A place to connect

Barking Riverside lies beside two kilometres of beautiful river Thames frontage.  Its close proximity to Barking Town centre, the City of London, Canary Wharf and the beautiful Essex countryside makes it the perfect location. You can now reach Central London in 22 minutes via Barking Riverside Overground station. Uber Boat by Thames Clippers now operate 7 days a week from Barking Riverside Pier connecting you with DLR and Elizabeth Line at Woolwich Arsenal.

The development is centrally located within the London Riverside Area, part of the larger Thames Gateway redevelopment zone, which is transforming the east London environment. It is one of the largest housing development sites in the UK and one of the largest brownfield developments in Europe. The site is the location of the former Barking Power Station; the river frontage includes a disused wharf, pier and wider areas of untouched natural landscapes, spreading east towards Dagenham.
