When we arrived we were not greeted by anyone more or less looked down upon. Nobody welcomed us in or asked if we wanted a map or wanted information on anything. Just looked down upon us. The staff in the gift shop were in helpful and grumpy. We didn't stay long because we felt so un-welcomed.

Spent a great couple of hours here. It's a lovely, bright and spacious modern art gallery with some excellent pieces and it is a pleasure to walk round. Particularly liked the exhibition "Dead - a celebration of mortality" that was on at the time we visited.

The gallery's location of Duke of York's HQ is fantastic, and very easy to reach on public transport. Free entry is also an enticement to explore contemporary art. Some of the exhibits on display when I visited included a room-sized mattress of what appeared to be blue plastic bags. Other works were thought-provoking and amusing - including a black &... More

Came here for the Patek Philippe exhibition celebrating 175 years of watch making. Though it probably helps to be a bit of a watch geek to enjoy such an exhibition my non-geek girlfriend also enjoyed it a lot. The gallery staff are all very welcoming and there are cloakrooms, toilets and a cafe should you need them. The exhibition itself... More

Lovely building and exhibition spaces - (and have always loved the extra wide floor boards). Whats on display can be worth a quick stroll through or just stunning. Today i found the Pangraea II. pretty cool overall / some challenging some sublime. Personal favourites in this X are in the rear ground floor space - Large canvas`s of trees from... More

We visited the amazing Saatchi gallery in the elegant Chelsea in Sloane Square yesterday. Apart from the fact it has free entry and a wonderful outdoor restaurant especially if the weather is nice (like yesterday!), it always surprises with its exhibitions! The current one called the Pangaea is really worth the visit with amazing bery original exhibits by Aftican artists.... More

This was my first ever visit to the Saatchi Gallery. If the central mission of the Gallery is to showcase contemporary and diverse art then the two current exhibits (Pangaea II: New Art From Africa And Latin America and DEAD: A celebration of mortality) bear ample testimony to its success. The artwork and installations were so varied that there was... More

We dropped in for a morning following recommendations from friends, including teenagers who had found they enjoyed the exhibits. All in all, the three generations among us all found the visit very enjoyable... as with modern art, you sometimes wonder if it is art, or whether the artist was deliberately trying to irritate people, but that is the merit of...

This gallery is one of my favorite, it is curated excellently. The art is really interesting, and is exhibited together in a very thoughtful way. It's located in a really nice area, and overall it gets a thumbs up from me. Would recommend a visit.

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.
