The Saatchi Gallery is always worth a visit. Big bright halls, changing exhibitions and a great shop with lots of temptations are all things you will find here. With free admission it is also great if you are traveling on a budget.

The Post Pop show at the Saatchi Gallery is worth the visit, very global, fascinating. Many Russian and Chinese artists. Intriguing art.

We always try to fit in this gallery when we visit London as there is always something new to see. The best bit is it is free and it's only £1 for a guide The staff are great and the art so carried and interesting Easy to get to on the number 11 bus which is a great ride from... More

I had missed the gallery on my last couple of trips to London. What a mistake! I went on my last trip to see the Post Pop East Meets West. What an amazing show. I was blown away! I have to say from looking at catalogs of previous shows, I think they hit the amazing mark regularly. GO!!!!!

Big building in a posh zone in London (Sloane Square). This gallery is extraordinarly different from other gallerie that I've never seen! It is free and it has collected a lot of various strange works from all over the world! Definitely recommended!

At lasti managed to stop by the Saatchi Gallery. The building is spacious and clean to view arts without rubbing someone else shoulders. They have some nice art works although not everything is my taste.

We went to the gallery because our daughter wanted to go. Really was surprised at how good it was. For some reason I was expecting a shop rather than a gallery. I couldn't have been more wrong. Extremely good thought provoking modern art. It's worth noting that some of the art may offend.

Put the Saatchi Gallery on your must do list. Mouna Rebeiz is currently presenting La Tabouche there and this show alone makes it well worth the trip to Chelsea. A delightfully rude botanical wallpaper and the gallery of advertising where the questionable ethics of major brands are creatively lampooned by various artists were memorable. There was a provocative installation in... More

We had never been to the Saatchi before, although I have taken students to the bigger galleries on many occasions. I liked the size and layout of the gallery which is smaller than the Tate Modern but more concise. It's small enough to get round in less than an hour, though of course you can spend longer. Plus it's FREE... More

The Saatchi Gallery is a short walk from the Sloane Square underground station, in one of the most upscale areas of London. If you enjoy cutting edge contemporary art, this is the place. It's a medium size museum with a lot of style. I enjoyed it more than a visit to Tate Modern. Some of the displays may offend or... More

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.
