I Love B V I Love BV - Britannia Village

There's a lot to love about Britannia Village.  I Love BV celebrates the best things about community life in this part of the London Borough of Newham and encourages us to build and BelieVe in Better and look forward to the future.

360 degree view of britannia Village Hall by Clare MoranBritannia Village Hall is the hub and heart of Village activities.  It provides a place where carers can meet; where there are daily supervised groups for toddlers, children and young people and a host of social and sports activities for everyone in our community.  

BV's Got Talent too!  Our young people are brimming with potential and apart from the regular daily activities, Youth work Managers, Steve and Angie Allgood organise and supervise very successful holiday programmes with a host of activities where our children and young people gain confidence and enrichment and pride in their achievements.  We have young people working towards Youth Achievement Awards who also contribute hugely to the success of our activities programmes.

Britannia Village SchoolBritannia Village Primary School is among the top 100 in the country and also boosting the value of our community are a GP surgery, a day care nursery and a multi-use games area on the Village Green which opened in 2011.

The area around Britannia Village is beautiful: the sun rises over the river Thames, glinting on the iconic structure of the Thames Barrier and sets behind the shining towers of Canary Wharf and the O2 Arena.  Dinghies and ducks float across Royal Victoria Dock and Thames Barrier Park and Lyle Park buzz with life all year round.  Also on our doorstep are London City Airport and the Docklands Light Railway - an attraction in itself.

There is growth and opportunity - Siemens has built a £30 million landmark Sustainability Centre at the western end of Royal Victoria Dock called The Crystal.  The Cable Car is now running from the Royal Docks high above the river Thames to Greenwich O2.


Whether you are a local resident or an online visitor we hope you will grow to Love BV too!
