dagenham to beckton

Local Conversations in Romford

Apples
Before anyone says anything i have tried looking this journey up but its not clear. Mum needs to go from Dagenham to Beckton retail park by bus, does anybody know if a no.5 or 173 goes from here and will it take her into the retail park?
Boots
The 173 goes to Beckton Triangle retail park,  but not galleons reach shopping park, for that you need a 366 from Barking.  I am going by a tfl bus map [paper version - Jan 2015]  hope this helps.

Lindsey B - Yes someone posted free swimming lessons think it was in Ilford somewhere ?? Don't know if it was just in the 6 week holidays though. If you put 'free swimming lessons' in your 'search streetlife' box, you should find it.

It was. Free swimming lessons for teachers needing assessment. All us adults got one to one tuition for the full one and a half hour sessions for the four days.
