My partner and I visited the gallery on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Not overly a fan of modern art but- the gallery is a beautifully laid out building- modern mixed with old. Some of the exhibits were amazing and we had to return a couple of times to look at them again- particularly the oil reflections room and the Most... More

Love it! Very well organised art gallery, the design of art dispalys and building structure help to explore the gallery easily and comfort your eyes, not too tide and not too less. On the top of it, it is FREE !!

As a photographer, I was very impressed with the lighting at the Saatchi. The architecture is also striking - the way several old buildings were combined using lifts and staircases on the outside. We were very impressed by an exhibit of artwork by Ben Quilty - an Australian artist.

The Saatchi Gallery is my favorite gallery in London. The size is perfect to spend a couple of hours and really understand the background of each exhibition. The shop is also pretty cool!

If you are interested in contemporary art, Saatchi Gallery is a destination not to miss while you visit London. The quality of the gallery and the generosity of its donors have converted it practically in a museum where you do not pay to enter and admire the works of who's trending worldwide or who's emerging in the world of art.

I fell in love with the Saatchi Gallery many years ago when they were across the Thames in South Bank. He has an amazing collection of contemporary art. The new space in Sloan Square is also housed in a beautiful building. The location, a short walk from the Sloan Square tube stop, is terrific. You can shop or stop for... More

As usual, art of a mixed bag - some really appealing others just weird. I do so wish there were chairs or benches to sit on in this gallery. My bad hip nearly gave up! Beautifully presented gallery with an easy to flow through layout. Best exhibit still the 'oil room' - seen it many times and it is still... More

I visited the gallery with a friend and while we enjoyed the art I was struck with the repeated rudeness of the staff in the shop. Spanish speaking women on the till conducted a conversation in their own language (the same had happened before)..........I overheard 2 Chinese visitors ask for help with a book they were interested in and the...
