Barking wouldn't have better logistics if you picked it up and placed it on a map. By road, the A406 is less than a mile away, providing direct access to the M11 and onto the M25; the A13 and A124 are your two nearby westbound arteries to access Canary Wharf, the City and Central London. Looking eastwards, the A13 follows the River Thames, before joining the A127 to enter Southend-on-Sea where you'll find not only fabulous days out but also a modern airport. EasyJet fly to several European destinations from Southend. London City Airport, 5 miles to the west of Barking, is your second nearby airport. Stansted is merely 30 miles to the north, and Gatwick only 45 miles to the south. The planned Riverboat service westwards to Central London along the River Thames from the new Barking Riverside promises yet another alternative to the rich mix of comprehensive transport options Barking enjoys.
