Barking Riverside

A brand new neighbourhood for London, Barking Riverside is a vibrant new district, sitting alongside 2km of majestic Thames River frontage.
Once completed, the pioneering development will offer 10,800 new homes, alongside shops, restaurants and leisure and sports facilities. There will be public parks and river walkways, excellent new schools with state-ofthe-art facilities, and a new London Overground station, all in close proximity of central London.

Parklands, the first phase of new homes to launch on site with L&Q, is a collection of one to four bedroom contemporary houses and apartments.

Each home will bring together a perfect blend of comfort, architecture, design and impeccable eco-credentials, where you can live the life you want to live, and live it in style.

Local Information

Leisure Facilities

Barking Riverside has been designed to retain and nurture the unique ecology of the area.

A brand new Ecology Centre opens in Summer 2019 and will provide a superb opportunity to explore and learn about the fascinating wildlife and ecology residing on the former site.

Habitat areas range from urban to wetlands, mudflats, creeks, brooks, ponds and the River Thames itself, while the wildlife includes 43 species of breeding birds, rare bombardier beetles, common seals and more.

Local Shopping

Barking Riverside will feature 65,000 sq m of commercial floor space for retail, community and leisure facilities. Shopping, restaurants, cafés, as well as sports and recreation facilities – right on your doorstep. Our ambition is to create an environment which is as alive at night as it is during the day. Shopping centres such as Westfield Stratford City, Lakeside and Bluewater are already within easy reach


Build for your family’s future with an impressive choice of high-quality brand new schools, state-of-the-art facilities, and impressive results. Seven schools will serve the completed scheme, with four already open.

Riverside Campus opened in September 2017, with capacity for 2,600 students. This brand new £45 million complex provides three separate free schools (primary, secondary and special educational needs), as well as impressive facilities including a four-court sports hall, four multi-use games areas, an all-weather AstroTurf pitch, two dance studios, fully equipped science labs and an impressive main hall.

Already reporting excellent GCSE results, Riverside Campus paves the way for more top-performing schools to establish themselves at Barking Riverside, giving parents huge flexibility to select the very best for their child’s education.

High performing, nearby primaries include Sydney Russell School and Thames View Infants, both rated the only Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ primary schools in the borough. The new Riverside nursery opened its doors in September 2018.


A flagship NHS Healthy New Town, Barking Riverside will incorporate a wide range of health measures, designed to blend health and care services seamlessly into the growth of the town, making it much easier for residents to live healthier lives.

In the future, the development will incorporate flexible health centres and a GP surgery, along with community and sports facilities, open spaces and parklands. A key element of the initiative is the network of cycle routes, winding their way along the river and through every stage of the Barking Riverside development.

This convenient service links you directly to Barking town centre where you can connect on to alternative transport services.
