Free tours for anyone wanting to know more about the history of Barking and Dagenham are taking place next month.
They have been organised as part of Open House London, an annual celebration of architecture in the capital.
For those interested in the future of the borough, a bus tour takes participants to regeneration hotspots, while others focus on specific areas including Barking town centre, Barking Riverside and the Becontree estate.
Many of the tours are being organised by the borough’s regeneration agency Be First.
Managing director Pat Hayes encouraged people living in Barking and Dagenham to sign up, saying it is “a really good opportunity for local people to find out what’s going on on their doorstep”.
Open House London runs on Saturday, September 22 and Sunday, September 23.
