The Saatchi Gallery is such a lovely place where to spend few hours in full immersion in modern art. The gallery itself flow very easily flooded with light. And with exhibitions changing regularly there is always something new to see: this time "The Times" exhibition was my favourite.

If in London it will be a great shame not to visit this gallery. Spend a couple of hours between my appointments. Will visit with my other half soon

Every time I go to London I have a look (or two) at this wonderful gallery. This time I saw the African and South American artists' exhibition. It is really something to see...

A contemporary gallery in a classic setting meticulously designed for viewing art comfortably and from all sides and well lit. The staff are helpful and very friendly and is gloriously free to the public to be enriched by wonderful contemporary art.

This is the third time I've been here with my family on my birthday. Each time we've seen exhibitions of modern art from outside the Europe / North America 'art zone' - eg Indonesia. This year, the exhibition features artists from Latin America and Africa. Each of the dozen or so galleries contains the works with plenty of space and... More

This is my first visit and I really enjoyed the mix of styles. I liked Aboudia's collages and paintings which I saw online and drew my to the gallery. I was not disappointed. The ants were also amazing almost looking like skulls crawling up the walls! Being free to look around - there's nothing to loose and some good surprises.... More

I love modern art. Saatchi has gathered the best and never ceases to amaze. The exhibit I loved was the one by Rafael Gomezbarros which displayed ants all over the walls. I love this gallery.

While strolling down the King´s Road one Saturday morning, I happened to spy this gallery marked FREE. With not much to lose, apart from a bit of time, I ventured in. The start of my visit was quite impressive; crudely made oversized ants climbing up a wall in a huge room, which I found rather creepy. The other installations made... More

I saw this gallery from the no 11 bus and decided to call in the next day - the word 'free' was critical in that decision! I was in a bit of a hurry but wanted to see what it was like, expecting to see some famous works of art. I spent about 15 mins there - which was not... More

I love this gallery. The building itself us a beautiful juxtaposition of classic old architecture and new glass simplicity with raw brick too. There are lifts or stairs as the expositions run over 4 floors. Basement: tends to have a more permanent exhibit which stays for quite a while and is currently a room filled with petrol. The fumes have... More
