“Stunning gallery”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 via mobile

My partner and I visited the gallery on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
Not overly a fan of modern art but- the gallery is a beautifully laid out building- modern mixed with old.
Some of the exhibits were amazing and we had to return a couple of times to look at them again- particularly the oil reflections room and the Most Evil series and the Ants- just mesmerising.
A lovely place to while away a couple of hours and it's free!
Definitely worth a visit whether you are a modern art fan or not.

“Must visit!!”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Love it! Very well organised art gallery, the design of art dispalys and building structure help to explore the gallery easily and comfort your eyes, not too tide and not too less. On the top of it, it is FREE !!

“One of the finest galleries in the world”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

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.

“Best Gallery in London”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

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!

“A must do in London”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

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.
