Welcome to The Wilds at Barking Riverside, a new multi-purpose community, ecology and events space now open to the public.

The Wilds is a new community, ecology and events space in Barking Riverside which opened its doors in July this year. The first Summer Series of programming, activities and entertainment has just taken place, and the new Autumn series will be announced soon.

Designed and managed by Barking Riverside Limited (BRL), The Wilds includes a coffee shop called GROUNDED, brought to you by Coffee:Works, a new co-operative business created by Every One Every Day and a group of local people. The space also hosts a packed programme of workshops, exhibitions, and special events. You can co-work from The Wilds, hire the space for making, growing, and learning, and take advantage of other membership offers.

The Wilds is brought to you in partnership:
