Sloane Square is a lovely area! It is worth to go there even if there are no special exhibitions. Kings Road is full of great shops, lovely christmas lights, they have a food market on weekends.. West-London vibes are bumping everywhere! Saatchi Gallery is beautiful inside, clean, modern, displaying vibrant artists but not life changing though.

Happened to be walking by in the area and decided to drop in as I had not been here before. I enjoyed the spacious and uncrowded galleries and the large pieces of modern (but quite accessible) paintings. Since it is free, it is definitely worth a visit even if you breeze through.

It is not only the exhibition but also the gallery itself is great. The building, the high ceilings, the spaced paintings, all are breathtaking.

If you enjoy art, or are even vaguely curious about modern art, the Saatchi should definitely be on your to do list. Located in the middle of the King's Road Chelsea, it is easily accessible, and even better is completely free! However on entering the grand main entrance, which has a large open green space opposite, it is very much... More

This is the place for Japanese art and is set in the high end of Chelsea. It was a shame to see the gallery closed two weeks ago.

Our son is considering studying design and wanted to visit the Gallery. We weren't aware that there would only be the watch exhibition to see, but as a watch collector, my husband absolutely loved it. We also attended an interesting talk on watch design and how to launch a new watch brand in 2016. Overall it was an afternoon well... More

It is always a pleasure to go to the Saatchi Gallery when strolling around Sloane's Square and Kings' Road. The installation shots are always wonderful.

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.
