Serendipity lead us here, just out for a stroll down the King,s road. As pensioners we would not normally choose modern art, but this is a light bright gallery with thought provoking works, needs an open mind though. It was refreshing to see so many young people interested in art. The book shop was also very good with many quirky... More

People seem to get stuck in a loop of the National Gallery/ Tate but this was a refreshing change from the main few. It offered a chance to see some very contemporary art and craft. Initially visited 'Collect' and was impressed by the scale of the exhibition! Rooms and rooms filled with beautiful contemporary craft. This was my first visit... More

Just stumbled upon this wonderful gallery whilst strolling down the King's Rd and spent 2 hrs there! Very smart how the artists are all from emerging cultures and not the usual names... also found the clever idea of very minimal descriptions very refreshing and thought provoking.

Singularly unimpressed with the collection here, I am afraid in my opinion some of these paintings could have been completed in a nursery school by Under 5s. However I appreciate we all have differing tastes..... just a shame there were not more differing selections available to view. Waste of time....

This is a stunning transformation of former army barracks into a multi-levelled showcase for art, including balconies overlooking vast halls capable of displaying works of stature and grandeur. What a pity, then, that the current art on display is so lamentably poor. The main exhibition called, somewhat meaninglessly, Panagea II, boasts cutting-edge contemporary art from South America and Africa. The... More

The gallery has a nice mix of sculptures, installations and more traditional artwork. Some of it is very inspiring such as the plastic bag installation in gallery one. The £1 leaflet offers a nice little description about each work and guides you round. Probably couldn't spend longer than an hour inside. Overall a good gallery in a nice location with... More

First time at the Saatchi Gallery - and I was very taken by some of the work from 2 African artists on show - Boris Nzebo and Eddy Kamuanga. Some other pieces definitely did not inspire me much, but art is very personal. Would visit again.

I've visited the gallery a few times this year. I always keep my visit short and sweet so as to pick up the best of whats new. Some of pieces make you wonder what the artist was thinking and others where you are challenged in your perception. Definitely pop your head in and give yourself 20-30mins. Sometime you can be...

Returned here after three years. As before, fascinating, indeed challenging in places. Cutting edge art beautifully displayed in three floors of galleries. It's not the size of the big London galleries, but it's free and well worth a visit.

Today I was disappointed with the New Art from Africa & Latin America exhibition. I was unimpressed with the Dead: a Celebration of Mortality exhibition too. The only gems in the fourteen rooms were a couple of works from two African artists.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
