I visiteted this gallery in April 2014 (Pangea Exhibition), and also once in May 2013. Both showed highly interesting and inspiring works. They seem really good at spotting interesting subjects and artists. The architecture of the building is fantastic, and almost becomes part of the art experience. The gallery is located in a lovely area, close to the faboulous &... More

Recently visited the Pangea exhibition with my mum and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. The space within the gallery is excellent and really brings out the best in the art. Particularly moved by the arrangement of the draped jute sacks wall installation which really evocative. Well worth a visit. It is also in a great location surrounded by places to... More

If you enjoy looking at scribbles go to a nursery, instead go to the national portrait gallery. I have to write a least 100 words, so here is a list of adjectives to describe this place: Boring, waste of space, scribbles, disgraceful.....

What determines the quality of your visit to the SAATCHI Gallery is what the current exhibition is.

Just visited the Pangea exhibition. Really thought provoking. Some amazing photography. But best of all this was a huge hit with my sons (16 & 12) - not often something I can say about an art gallery. We all loved the room full of oil.

A beautiful gallery and well worth a visit. You will be equally bewildered as you will be amazed at some of the exhibits on show. Not the biggest fan of modern art in truth but preferred the Saatchi much more than the Tate Modern. There's a lovely cafe next door and overall it was a very enjoyable to spend an... More

Just getting back from the preview of their new exhibition, I found the Pangea exhibition refreshing and inspiring.

Original, modern, contemporary arts to see by free charge. Very inspiring gallery. There is a cafe/restaurant besides the gallery, so you can have a nice wine after visiting.

Great place to visit - very contemporary better than Tate Modern (IMHO) and is worth a visit. Certainly not a pretentious place.

The gallery is free to enter. Nice building, very welcoming. The exhibits have more than enough space. Modern art, worth to go.
