Owned by the National Trust and managed by the Borough of Barking and Dagenahm, Eastbury Manor House is a Grade I-listed Elizabethan merchant's house built of English bond red brick, with ‘diaper work’ patterns in grey brick. The servants’ hall has been restored. Upstairs, frescoes depicting fishing scenes survive in the Painted Room. The sole remaining Tudor fireplace can be found in the Long Gallery. A brick-walled courtyard lies to the south of the house. According to local legend, the Gunpowder Plot of 1605 was first conceived at Eastbury. Guided tours are available, some by costumed interpreters. The first Saturday of each month is family day, with a programme of children’s activities and other events.
