This is a gallery for new works of art not a museum curating the past. The current Selfie to Self Expression show might start with traditional painted self-portraits but these paintings have been photographed and are shown on electric screens. This reveals them in a new and informative way. You can see what is often kept from view in the... More

My girlfriend and I came here to see the fascinating selfie exhibition. I was very impressed by this free gallery. It is large, well-kept, light and airy. Outside was a gorgeous green lawn, though sadly it seemed to be out-of-bounds for sitters/picniccers. Very well-stocked shop at the end with a good range of typical and not-so-typical gallery/museum stuff. Of course... More

Great place to come for 1-2hrs. Current exhibition was about Selfies. Presented in a variety of ways - really drawing on technology which I thought was excellent! Fabulous way to spend the morning, and free too which is amazing!

Went to this gallery yesterday and was most impressed because it is nice and bright for viewing pictures. In Chelsea on the Kings Road so very accessible from Central London. Lots of lovely coffee shops and restaurants in the immediate vicinity

Popped in here whilst visiting London for the day and found it to be one of the more enjoyable exhibitions. The selfie exhibition is a cool concept and each room had a slightly different take on the photos that seem to have become embedded Into our everyday lives. It was somewhat thought provoking and certainly not boring. Worth a visit.

I love this gallery and it what represents. Saatchi is also located in one of the most fabulous neighbourhoods in London. They have a 'selfie'-portrait exhibition and it is very interesting and original. Highly recommended and it is family friendly.

Always worth a visit, its location and innovative collections, are enjoyable and thought provoking. This current exhibition, is well worth a review and I think, some of the displays will make you think; which is I feel what the Saatchi Gallery always does. Staff are friendly and welcoming and can add lot to your visit, if you take the time... More

The exhibit this time was about "selfies" and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The approach is interesting and appealing.

We spent about 2 hours in the galleries and had a very nice time. Engaging collection of contemporary art and there is no charge to get in!

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood 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.
