Half the gallery was shut. Hard to navigate. The artwork is weird to say the least and some of it is utter rubbish that i could've done in minutes. Massive rooms are unnecessary for the small amount of work in the rooms- space could be used better. But it was free so i guess i can't complain

One of the most interesting art galleries in town. There is a permanent artwork room but in the second floor you can always discover new artists work. The book shop is fabulous and super fun!

Having checked their website I went along to see the free exhibitions only to find out there was a chargeable exhibition on and you had to pay to get in - wouldn't have minded if it was clearly displayed on their web. Spoke to Saatchi staff and explained but no apology offered - they were rude and dismissive and aware... More

I have been to a few exhibitions here, mostly free (I think), and have always liked the offerings just as much as the building itself. It's all about 'contemporary' art so some shows are a bit out there but even if the art does not impress, the setting of the gallery and its classic design will surely impress: having a... More

Great gallery but watch out . Visited today and yet again only open to ticket holders. Nothing on the website and the opening times at the entrance both stated it was open to the public today . Fairly basic stuff .

The Gallery building is gorgeous, however the exhibition Painters' Painters was a disappointment apart from a couple of pieces. The permanent installation 20:50 is definitely worth seeing - fantastic illusion, you can't stop looking at it. I expect our experience would have been much more enjoyable had the art on display appealed to us more.

I was especially impressed with The Rolling Stones exhibition. This is a lovely Gallery and in a very smart part of town. Thoroughly recommend.

I liked it because it's contemporary and above all it's free. A bit like a book of poems, I only liked a few inside it, but because it's free you can tolerate room after room of paintings which do not appeal to you on any level. The shop inside sells cool things, and dare I say more interesting than most... More

Beautiful gallery with modern and spacious rooms. There are many different exhibitions here so it's good to check it before going to see it's your cup of tea. I've seen exhibitions that were a but too strange for me, but most were strangely beautiful.

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.
