  • I’ve reviewed the Saatchi before but that was for a previous exhibition. The current one “Known Unknowns” is well worth going to see. Once again some really very exciting artists who are all very vari...  more »
  • A contemporary gallery with very eye catching paintings, quite fine art-y (if that’s a word) but not as much as the Tate, very nice gallery space and very quite. The shop was cute as well  more »

  • Only my personal opinion because if modernism was my thing, it would probably get 5 stars. Pros- great location just off Kings Rd, beautiful building, spacious & well presented. Courteous staff, free cloakroom, great loos. All free exhibitions, not at all crowded. And the gift shop was fab! Cons- the art itself! Some interesting pieces but as I said, not my thing. Too weird! But still glad I went &worth the effort.
  • Everything an art museum has to offer is on offer. Their gift shop is really great - quirky presents all around. The location is brilliant, a few hundred meters away from good restaurants. Makes for a great day out.
  • Ten rooms of exceptional art, that spanned a number of different techniques. The room size, placement of the art and lighting made viewing the art a real pleasure. Bravo
  • Exhibitions at the gallery are always interesting, but it's worth also recommending the first floor bookshop and gift shop: they have an unusual selection both of more 'arty' items, and also just fun good design.
  • We went to see Jenny Saville but not there!! They need to update their information . Very dissapointed as travelled from buckinghamshire and according to staff we where one of many who have done this So my conclusion is a better communication from them would improve things
