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.

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
