Saatchi Gallery

Charles Saatchi's gallery, which opened after numerous delays in October 2008, has three floors, providing more than 70,000sq ft of space for temporary exhibitions. Given his fame as a promoter in the 1990s of what became known as the Young British Artists – Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Gavin Turk, Sarah Lucas et al – it surprised many that the opening exhibition was of new Chinese art. Since then Saatchi Gallery – housed in the historically significant Duke of York HQ – has continued its mission to provide a platform for unknown, young, contemporary artists both homegrown and international.

Venue name: Saatchi Gallery
Address: Duke of York's HQ
King's Rd

This is the gallery that made me fall in love with art. I have never been particularly drawn to art. I have always found it interesting but assumed I just didn't 'understand' it. It was in Saatchi Gallery that I learned that art is personal, and you don't have to feel the same way everyone does about it. The exhibitions are small and intimate so not as overwhelming as a museum. I have yet to go when it's crowded, which makes the experience seem even more personal. Also, i find that the exhibitions themselves have a bit of everything, contemporary and modern. Not only is the art great, but so are the venue and the location. It is located in the Duke of York square, which has a very serene ambiance to it, and although it is located right by Sloane Square station, nothing about it seems pretentious, but rather extremely relatable.

My favourite contemporary gallery in London! Apart from the arts, they also have a lovely restaurant with beautiful terrace!

I'm not really into art galleries but I thought I'd check this one out and I was pleasantly surprised. Set over 3 floors, it is light and spacious and not at all crowded. The perfect place the step away from hustle and bustle of London life and appreciate different and unusual contemporary art. The Pangea II exhibition is really interesting, especially Jean-Francois Boclé's 'Everything must go' installation featuring a sea of 97.000 blue plastic bags! What's refreshing is that there are no security ropes to keep people back so you can really get up close and see the art. The gallery is not too massive so it doesn't feel like a bore going from room to room- just a cool place to spend an hour or two. And it's free!

Amazing gallery! The only issue I had was the amazingly realistic old lady ball of yarn which scared me to the point of not being able to enjoy it. You will understand when you see it


Brilliant. Fantstic feeling of space to absorb and appreciate all kinds of art and sculpture. No railings or ropes - as long as you dont touch, you can view as close as you like. Went on a bank holiday w/end and was totaly uncrowded. Some thought provoking choices too AND ITS FREE !


I love this place, situated a stones throw from the Kings road and Sloane square tube...always stunning work being exhibited in a huge space
