Barking and Dagenham

Known as one of the biggest growth hubs in London, Barking & Dagenham has huge potential, with some of the highest percentage of business growth in the capital – so it’s not surprising that new and colourful buildings are appearing in every corner.

Newham

The Newham Carnival is a vibrant display of colourful costumes, dance and music created by schools and community groups throughout the east London borough. Each year sees around 2,500 participants with thousands more lining the streets cheering them on.

Redbridge

Hainault Forest in Redbridge is an area of 336 acres, earmarked a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The view from the lake is by far the most stunning and is close to the Hainault Forest Gold Club and Fox Burrow Farm, used for preserving rare breeds of animals.
