Have to agree with some of the other reviews, always found the Saatchi Gallery to be one of the most stimulating, didn't happen for me this time. Sorry. -But I will always come back.

Great contemporary art museum. Generally, each gallery showcases an artist. Nice variety of works. Admission is free and it was quite empty on a Saturday when I visited. The gift shop is nice and has lots of unique gifts for the folks back home. Absolutely...More

We were expecting more from this renowned gallery but the artwork was uninspiring on the whole. Glad it was free entry. The building however is beautiful and the rooms are wonderfully spacious.

The art was not for us at all with the exception of a couple of pieces that got us talking. We were disappointed, maybe we expected too much. However we loved the surroundings and the restaurant and are glad we finally visited.

Saatchi Gallery is wonderful. The art exhibited is always exciting and often it is outstanding. But I don't want to write about the Art, I want to praise the architecture. Somebody took a historic building and turned it into one of the world's best museums....More

Possibly the only museum in London that doesn't have crazy lines and tourists, and it is therefore the best kept secret in town. Not to mention no entry fee. Interesting and eclectic contemporary art, and worth the visit for anyone open to wandering galleries filled...More

A freely open and encouraging private gallery is a bonus. Depends what you like but the exhibits didn’t grab me. Shop had an unusual selection though. The photo exhibiton failed to engage so as to care. Outside they are building a new (already) award winning...More

The good news is its free entry. The bad news is it's contemporary art. A few pieces have been made by skilled artists, sadly the majority have not been made by artists. Worth seeing though, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

If you haven"t been to Saatchi, you are missing a lot. It is the place for art lovers. There was an exhibition of late acquisitions from young artists. I think you can get lots of inside by seeing the young future stars and get idea...More

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
