The Step Outside Blog

As anyone who looks at our books will be aware, we love London and are passionate about helping other people to enjoy our city, through cost-free family days out.


A good few people have suggested that we write a blog about London things that have caught our attention, captured our hearts or made us think - or all of the above - so here it is.

We hope you enjoy it!

A nice spot in London - The Saatchi Gallery.

By Francesca Fenn, Oct 17 2018 01:15PM

Have you been to the Saatchi Gallery in the Kings Road, Chelsea? For ten years now it has been housed in a splendid historic building, the Duke of York's Headquarters, near Sloane Square Station.

The aim of the Saatchi Gallery is to showcase young and unknown artists, so you never know what you might see on display.. Some works are deeply impressive, or very interesting. Others may leave you wondering why they are there! Some artists may be launched from the gallery into the world of international dealers and exhibitions, while others may never be heard of again. It is always worth taking a few minutes to stroll around if you are passing. And there is, of course, an excellent cafe/restaurant if you want to splash out.

Here are a few photos of exhibits from our last visit there in August.

Nearest station; Sloane Square, District & Circle Line.
