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.

The Saatchi Gallery is excellent in many ways. While its prime Chelsea location is an advantage, the layout of the light, huge airy rooms are ideal display areas. The shop too is great for quirky, clever and funny 'arty' gifts. What a shame then that the current exhibition, Painters' Painters, is such dross. The exhibition features the work of Richard...

This gallery is not far from Sloane Square Tube. Entry to normal exhibitions is free. The building is of interest as well. If you are interested in contemporary art, then check this gallery out. If you visit on a Saturday then there also is a great food market nearby on King's Road. There is a very good gift shop as... More

We found this gallery by chance while walking along the Kings Road. Free entry to exhibitions that change regularly. The setting is a beautiful old building which was once an army barracks.

We decided to go on New Years Eve. It is a big space with the gallery spaces across floors. The space is open wide. You direct yourself we took our teenager, who was clicking away on the phone taking photos. The Painters' painter series is great, something for everyone, from David Brian Smith's Great Expectation pieces to Richard Aldrich abstract... More

Very nice spacious gallery with some thought provoking pictures. A shop upstairs with a good selection of gifts and prints. Free entry which is always a bonus.

Came across this gallery by chance on a visit to the area. Fabulous building and free entry. However art was not to my taste at all. Very weird! Also not that many pieces of art for such a large building. If you are into strange modern art pictures then you must go, otherwise forget it.

Saw the excellent Stones Exhibitionism at this venue. Good space, helpful staff and good audio tours although was something of a bottleneck at the beginning.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
