Barking is a suburban town in East London. It has a quieter, more relaxed atmosphere compared to the busier and bustling parts of Central London. It's claim to fame is that it was one of six London Borough's to host the 2012 summer Olympics! The area is currently undergoing some considerable regeneration which is exciting and hopes to bring more jobs, businesses and shops to the region. However, if it's shopping you are after, you don't need to wait for this to be complete as Lakeside and Westfield shopping centres are nearby! If you would like to see a more historical side to Barking, you can explore the ruins of Barking Abbey or enjoy a walk round Eastbury Manor which is now a National Trust property. So, whether you are in the area for a specific reason or just passing through, we have some excellent accommodation available.
