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

As most of the time it does actually rain in London, the Saatchi Gallery is a great place to spend an afternoon checking the weird and down right weirder of the Art world. With 15 Galleries on 3 floors , a free clock room and right by Sloane Sq tube station with FREE ENTRY this is one of London's tourist... More

A smartly designed set of rooms with modern art of various kinds, some quite nice, some quite funny, but all presented in a visitor-friendly way.

A very elegant gallery with a variety of spaces, all beautifully lit. The exhibitions change regularly and a great strength is that modern art is featured from all over the world. The current exhibition Post Pop: East Meets West is a good example, with some fascinating work from Russia and China, as well as closer to home. And their policy... More

Took my daughter and several of her friends with the intention of spending the morning and moving on to another gallery in the afternoon. The girls found the gallery fascinating and we end up sending the entire day sketching and taking it all in. Fantastic and free!!!

I had never been to the Saatchi Gallery before as I had got the impression that it would be too avant garde for my taste. But they had an exhibition on called Post Pop: East Meets West and as I like a bit of pop art and love Communist propaganda art I thought I would make my first trip. My... More

The Gallery is located in an easy to reach and fun corner of London - the edge of Sloane Square and at the beginning of the King's Road. The Gallery is free to enter, light and airy, well curated and full of contemporary modern art - you don't need to spend hours there but if modern art is your thing,... More

Loved it! Some of the art is pretentious rubbish, but it all made me think; some of it made me laugh, some is disturbing, some is quite profound. Obviously if you have very conservative views and think all art should be presented in a frame and consist of paint or marble then stay away; however if you like to be... More
