The whole experience at this gallery is overwhelming: the garden, the architecture of the building and even the location, next to King's Road. The large lighted spaces of the exhibitions are providing an easy to walk and orient through. The contemporary art presented is mostly of young artist but all with very strong presence and essence. It felt like being exposed right into the main vein of the most" here and now" art scene. Enjoyed it very much!

We visited on a Saturday afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed the gallery. I loved how open and lightful the spaces are, and easy to get around with lift and stairs in centre of building. Artworks nicely arranged in large rooms. Such a pleasure to visit.
On Saturdays there is a food market just outside in the precinct. A great afternoon!

Visiting an hour before lunch, midweek, I had most galleries to myself. I really enjoyed the Greta Alfaro's media piece, where giant birds descend on a well set table to gorge themselves. The photos of people perched dangerously in window sills, were engaging and voyeuristic. An all around great exhibition and gallery.

Great exhibition of Russian art / photography. Very moving and almost biblical in style.
The five day Hermes atelier exhibition was amazing. Always loved Hermes, so to meet the crafts men and women was a real treat. All for free.

Well done Saatchi xx

We went to this gallery after hearing great things but when we turned up it was absolutely rammed full of people, you could barely move it was so full, let alone actually see anything! There should be a limit on the amount of people let in or something as I actually couldn't believe how full it was, the stairs were almost dangerous due to the amount of people on them.

If you want a relaxing, peaceful gallery experience DO NOT come here! Especially if you hate hipsters and wannabes as the place is crawling with them!

I will not be visiting this cattle market again.
