One of South Bank’s most distinctive buildings, the historic Oxo Tower Wharf is a local design hub and renowned London landmark.

A formerly industrial building constructed in 1929, since the 1990s it has been home to dozens of independent artisans and design studios working in a variety of materials.

On the ground floor is a mix of retail and cafes, and spread across the second and third floors of the building are the studios and galleries where talented local artisans create and sell their products. This is an anti-mall experience, where every item on sale is unique and handmade and where the artisans themselves are usually present to talk you through their products.

Brand Academy is a fun independent gift shop that promotes scores of interesting design brands from across the world.
