Virgin Active, Repton Park

Virgin Active, Repton Park

Not somewhere accessible to every local, but worth a mention all the same. The pool here is set within a converted church and is one of the most relaxing places to come and reflect upon your day...or just reflect on life.

Great Middle Eastern-style food, stunning venue and a fantastic atmosphere. Will certainly be going back! You can spend your whole evening here, as there's a cocktail bar with live music for pre or post-dinner drinks.

Great locally produced food. Look out for TTaste street food serving freshly made gyoza (Chinese dumplings) served with TTaste homemade chilli oil.

All You Read Is Love

All You Read Is Love

My absolute fave hang out is this uber cool independent bookshop, café and bar run by a lovely Danish pair in Bushwood, Leytonstone. They hold great Scratch Nights for up and coming artists. Real unique personality to it - comedy, magic, music gigs and book launches. Fab cocktails and coffee too. In the daytime, it's the perfect place to buy or just chill with a book.

Great cosy atmosphere, superb coffee and cocktails, second hand books and records!

Le Petit Corner

Le Petit Corner

Le Petit Corner is my absolute fave café in the Bushwood end of Leytonstone. It's Bugaboo central, but the kids can play downstairs, so upstairs is chilled and they have a secluded garden. Top toasties and apple tart and just started doing select gourmet food evenings, perfect for date night!

Compôtes

This cafe next to Wanstead Park Station makes a great cappuccino!

Chinese takeaway if you're in between the Forest Gate and Upton Park Area. All fresh ingredients, amazing portions and cooked with loads of colour and flavour!

The Birds

Amazing Sunday Roasts. Cool pub based on Alfred Hitchcock - Leytonstone's most famous son. Set right in heart of Bushwood Area. Great crowd.

Little Saigon

"The only complete skull of a mammoth to be discovered in the UK was unearthed in 1860 on Ilford's High Road."

Many people don't realise it's only a quick train ride into central London from Barking Station!

Natalie Mills

Barking has a lot to offer - shops, schools and river walks...and with a massive regeneration programme already under way, its future is very bright...
