It is not the best area in London but for sure it is the most afordable

I think that the area is all right. It is not the best area in London but for sure it is the most afordable. For many people who leave here it could feel like heaven compare to the countries where there come from. It is suitable for family with children and pets

Transport

There are lots of transport links from Barking station. National rail C2C with 20min journey to the City. Also London Overground serve here and ofcourse London underground with District line and Hammersmith an city line and many buses as well

Community

I think that on my street there are many good things. First of all it is not very busy one eventhough it is very close to the Barking center. We have free resident parking which is on the street as well. Bin collection is done every week. Anti-social behaviour is like everywhere in London. There is a bit train noise from the rail lines but it is bearable

Amenities

There are lots of shops in the area like big Tesco, big Asda, Lidl, big Sainsburys and so many other local shops like Bulgarian, Romanian, Latvian, Turkish. Four days per week there are local market on high street which is quite good. There are 2 Costa coffe shops and some other brands. Also there are some restourants. The most beautifull atraction for me is Barking park which is really nice. There is 1000m long lake with variaty of wild life. The park is very well look after.

I consider it to be dangerous, because of yesterday's crime in Wilmington Gardens

I consider it to be dangerous, because of yesterday's crime in Wilmington Gardens, and many other crimes in and around the station. Overall, as I try to avoid all the trouble, I like this area

Transport

The range of transport links is pretty good, can't complain about that, the only issue is that most trains are always overcrowded, regardless the time of day.

Community

Where I live, I have my own parking space, so for me it's good. I have seen anti social behaviour before, but at least police visits this area pretty often. Just wish PSCO's would deal with problems (drunk people, beggers, drug addicts) to remove them from the streets of this area instead of walking around and chatting with regular people

Amenities

Talking about a range of food, we have an extremely wide range. But food is not the issue here. The issue is, if I need some quality clothes or shoes I have to travel elsewhere. Not 1 decent place to buy good quality shoes, or quality clothes
