    The Saatchi Gallery is modern, free, and not too big. It specialises in modern and conceptual art and will not be to many people's taste, but it is worth going for the experience. It has an interestin...  more »

    Though I live in London, for some reason I had never got round to visiting Saatchi Gallery. I am so glad I recently got to visit as it was so beautiful. I recommend visiting on a bright sunny morning ...  more »

    This gallery has a special place in my heart, as I was lucky enough to have a closed preview before it ever opened. Having revisited many times, it still fills me with joy when I go alone or with my o...  more »

  • Based in a large former army barracks off the Kings road, worth a trip too as the art there changes regularly and is usually very interesting to very good. Has several large well lit rooms to view the work in and draws its art from many countries and cultures.
  • The "Selfie to Self-Expression" exhibition was fascinating with lots of interactive elements. Great shop with lots of quirky gifts. Beautiful building. A great way to spend a few hours. And it's free - perfect!
  • Beautiful art, some times weird ones, but always worth the visit. Also great to take friends visiting London. You can spend 30min to a couple of hours here, depending on how much you like art and spend on each piece.
  • Excellent and tragicomedic "From Selfie to Self-Expression" will allow for both: self-reflection, as well as laughter. The second floor follows Carmignac Photojournalism Award winner investigating connection between Libyan authorities and human trafficking. All in all - beautiful place that holds subjects many will find interesting
  • What a treat to have a beautiful modern art gallery in an equally beautiful central location and it is free! Saatchi Gallery always have interesting and thought provoking exhibitions. Definitely worth a visit. Cafe is also nice for afternoon tea but I prefer visiting the lively Saturday food market in the square nearby for some great artisan food.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
