You’ve probably seen the iconic building beside The Thames, the one with the bright red neon OXO logo at night. But did you know that there’s an exhibition space inside, with some really cool exhibitions going on over the next few months?

Best of all, they’re free!

Granted, they’re not from big names or the must-see exhibitions every year that you get at the Tate Modern or the V&A. But hey, if you’re going to be enjoying the nice weather coming up by the river on the South bank, and passing by, why not pop in and see some interesting new art exhibitions at the Gallery@OXO?
