Charles Saatchi’s gallery is famous for championing artists before the rest of the art world catches on. Legendary for his early support of Damien Hirst and the rest of the YBAs (that’s Young British Artists, for the uninitiated), Saatchi’s roster is still one of the most forward-thinking in contemporary art. The excellent on-site Gallery Mess Cafe and its daily afternoon tea service (there’s a boozy version that involves a jug of Pimm’s and an option for kids, too) deserve mention.
