Places to stay in Barking

With 15 brand new Stayo homes to choose from at Stayo Barking, you’ll feel like a local in the buzz of East London.

Stayo Barking is in an area that has lots to offer and is lovely in itself. Got tickets for an event at the 02 Arena? Book a Stayo Barking apartment and you’re only 20 minutes away. Football fans can also enjoy easy access to both West Ham and Woolwich stadium. Shoppers will love visiting Westfield Stratford City, Europe’s largest shopping centre nearby or Walthamstow Market, the longest outdoor market in Europe offering everything from fruit and veg to rolls of fabric, and some great restaurants like Pie Mash along the way.

One other highlight of Stayo Barking is the easy access to the beach! You’ve read right – the beach, more specifically Leigh-on-Sea, a charming coastal town. You can get there within just over half an hours C2C train ride. Escape in Summer for a sunny beach day or for a blast of fresh air along the seafront in Winter.

Stayo Insider Tip: Enjoy London’s quiet side along the wild footpaths at Barking Riverside. Explore the expanse of low fields that was once a salt marsh, now drained for the grazing of sheep and cattle. You’ll discover a mix of wildflowers and wildlife – keep an eye out for seals!

Stayo Recommends: The Boathouse Café and Bar on the riverfront, a warm and friendly place to eat and drink.
