"Bargehouse - Oxo Wharf" Top 5 Page for this destination Oxo Tower Tip by Mariajoy

Oxo Tower, London: 19 reviews and 44 photos

We visited Bargehouse (a massive undeveloped warehouse space on the South Bank) for the Barnado's exhibition about child poverty in Britain today.

Currently, in the UK today, THIRTY PERCENT of children are living in poverty. I am ashamed. The exhibition is situated on 3 floors (with disabled access) and is entitled "Seeing is Believing" and features photographs of 100 families and young people all over the UK who's lives, for all kinds of reasons, have been blighted by poverty. Some of the content of the audio/visual displays not suitable for younger children.

The free exhibition runs until the 31st Dec 07 but please check the website for details of forthcoming events.
