As a photographer, I was very impressed with the lighting at the Saatchi. The architecture is also striking - the way several old buildings were combined using lifts and staircases on the outside. We were very impressed by an exhibit of artwork by Ben Quilty - an Australian artist.

The Saatchi Gallery is my favorite gallery in London. The size is perfect to spend a couple of hours and really understand the background of each exhibition. The shop is also pretty cool!

If you are interested in contemporary art, Saatchi Gallery is a destination not to miss while you visit London.
The quality of the gallery and the generosity of its donors have converted it practically in a museum where you do not pay to enter and admire the works of who's trending worldwide or who's emerging in the world of art.

Nice building
Big airy rooms
Lots to see
the african art was rather hard for me to understand
worth one visit
I think that this one is modern art mainly.
Lots to see outside in King Street Chelsea
Free entry

I fell in love with the Saatchi Gallery many years ago when they were across the Thames in South Bank. He has an amazing collection of contemporary art. The new space in Sloan Square is also housed in a beautiful building. The location, a short walk from the Sloan Square tube stop, is terrific. You can shop or stop for a snack at Pret a Manger on your way to the gallery or eat in one of the restaurants ringing the park/plaza where the museum is.

The structure is a multi story building broken into a bunch of smaller exhibition spaces. The last time we visited, they were having a special exhibition of emerging artists, so I really can't comment on what's on now, but if you are a fan of contemporary art, this museum is sure to please and will definitely get you thinking. It's a personal favorite of mine and I include it in any trip to London.
