If you really like really modern art, you will like this. Don't expect lots of big names (e.g. names that non-specialists know) but do expect to be surprised, pleased, and sometimes shocked. There are some of the best examples of contemporary art I have seen in here - and some of the most banal too. But I know that not every one will agree which ones are which! Good facilities, shop, etc, and rather nice cafe. Worth going if you want somewhere other than Tate Modern to go - and it is free!!!

It is a joke in my family that the Saatchi Gallery is never open when I am in London. I love modern art and have always wanted to go. I finally made it and it lived up to my expectations - a must for anyone who loves modern art. For more info read my blog http://havefunflysafe.com/category/london/

Really enjoyed the exhibit at the Saatchi Gallery. They do a very nice job of displaying very interesting modern artwork from artists that I wasn't entirely familiar with. Exhibitions were interesting, gallery was the perfect size to traverse in about 70-90 minutes, and best of all, it was FREE! Can't beat that.

Checked out their current exhibit, Paper. I have to say it was very well curated. Collection of works was amazing.

Highly recommend this place to fellow art & design lovers.

Half a day here should be sufficient.

... but the art in the current expo is a very mixed bag. That said, it is refreshing and the gallery is right to push the boundaries and encourage young artists. There's some very challenging stuff here, and the hang and the light and the sense of space all can't be faulted.
