Barking Riverside lies beside 2km of beautiful south-facing River Thames frontage.

The development is located on the bank of the River Thames; east of Canary Wharf, City Airport and the Thames Barrier. In 2021, the new Barking Riverside station will open, part of a £263 million extension to the London Overground. This will provide a major new artery into London’s transport network, bringing the City into easy reach and allowing residents to access major employment and cultural centres within just half an hour.

A Historic Site

The original site consisted of three coal-fired stations situated at River Road. The development began in 1920 when the County of London Electric Supply Company applied for permission to build a power station at Creekmouth in Barking. Barking Power Station opened in 1925 and when completed, it was the largest power station in Britain to have been built as a complete station at one time.
