Time to spare in London? This is a hidden gem for modern art lovers. Something for everyone. The Hermes Wanderland was extremely unusual and thought provoking. Mainly what are they trying to achieve here? However, it's free and in the most amazing building/setting, so what's not to love.

Went there by accident, but ended up really loving it. A small museum with modern art. When we were there, they had an Hermes exhibition that was really interesting to walk through, as well as a lot of fun for adults and children alike. Admission is free!

A lovely gallery. Really worth a visit to absorb great contemporary work. Great for reflection. Love the fact that it is free as you don't feel guilty at just popping in and concentrating on a few pieces

The Saatchi gallery is definitely one of London's hidden treasures. As a Londoner, I can't believe I've overlooked it until now. The gallery itself is spacious, bright and clean with around 15 rooms showcasing a wide range of art. I visited on a Friday morning, and it was relatively quiet compared to the bigger galleries in London. The main exhibition... More

A great gallery. You can photo the exhibits and get up close. A breath of fresh air and it's free. Highly recommended.

went to the Saachi gallery today with the family - my son's choice of gallery. I had expected to see lots of Damien Hurst &/or Tracy Emmin, but not at all. This was really interesting modern art (not that the others would be a disappointment), certainly very thought-provoking. On a lighter note, I loved "Wanderland" exhibition by Hermes - beautifully...

This is a nice , compact and organised space for art. Multi floors but distinct rooms with individual artists. The art is modern, contemporary or even avant garde, so not for everyone . There are no big names though, probably a good platform for emerging artists. There's even a large Hermes exhibit, many rooms of artists interpreting art and society,... More

Saatchi is unlike any other art space. We love it. We come back every time we are in London. Every piece is provocative and unique.

How did we miss this place when we visited London last year? Lucky my wife pulled me to this Hermes Wanderland exhibition or else I didn't know this place! Basking in the Spring morning sun (around 10) this place is like a magical Palace in the middle of the bustling Chelsea area. Even the track in the front is closed... 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.
