Say what you will about the 1%, but when they collect art and then put it on display for the rest of us to view for free you have to appreciate it. The Saatchi collection is housed in a nicely restored building - not a new edifice spit out of Frank Gehry's computer. The collection on display is small enough... More

Amazing space and park. Bright and light... It's either you would like the art pieces or you would not. I guess the pieces that were displayed at that time didn't stand out enough for me. I was actually hoping to see Ai Wei Wei's installation of "World Leaders in Wheelchairs" but it was not on display at that time because... More

The gallery is in a beautiful building in a lovely park. Inside, the space is open, light and airy. Some of the works on display are absolutely fantastic. Some are not - they are mainly on the ground floor, so don't be put off when you first go in. It's free, so what a bargain! Usual shop and loos. There... More

The Saatchi Gallery is one of London’s leading venues for exhibitions by upcoming young artists, and often shows artists that are virtually unknown. They have staged exhibitions of work by artists from the US, Germany and China who have not been seen in London before. The philosophy behind the Saatchi Gallery is to show the best artists working today, and... More

Great place to visit this time of year just to see the Christmas lights twinkling in the trees outside against the evening sky. You have to navigate your way through the Christmas shoppers but this is to be expected on the ever busy Kings Road. The outside of the Saatchi Gallery is beautiful and i liked the layout of the...

Visiting at this time of year is a treat because of the gorgeous Christmas lights around York/sloane square and the bustle of the kings road. The gallery is a fine building to look at and I'm sure even more lovely in the summer with the outside seating. The art was not really my cup of tea but thought provoking and... More

The gallery has about 8 show rooms and the flow of the rooms are very easy and the curator makes the experience nice and easy. It's not like other London museums and galleries which are huge and overwhelming. Saatchi Gallery is a great place to visit to check out cool art and not have to commit a whole day doing... More

The Saatchi Gallery is known for a variety of things - alternately enraging and pleasing a variety of art lovers and culture vultures, poor presentations, good presentations, a curious blend of quality and outright junk, and an approach to curation that is at times bewildering, occasionally brilliant, and always controversial. None of that is to say I like the gallery.... More

Free admission and went to see the Pop Art Exhibition. Interesting art, some good some not so but it is a taste thing! Worth a visit if you are in the King's Road.
