Had to go and see the collection before it goes on tour. What a lovely experience - quite intimate as that part of the gallery was quite small but just right - and I have to say staff were very welcoming, from the security staff,...More
There has been much publicity and controversy as to the authenticity of this painting but for me personally, to have had an opportunity to get close - within touching distance - was awe-inspiring. I'm referring to Leonardo da Vinci's Salvator Mundi (Saviour of the World)...More
What a surprise this was. Visited Christies to see the two Francis Bacons due to be sold on 6th October and then there was all this wonderful art on display to be auctioned over the next 3 - 4 days. As this was our first...More
A great auction venue in South Kensington which holds a wide range of auctions from decorative arts to lesser-value classical and other artworks. It also holds excellent exhibitions in the front gallery spaces.
Sadly, there are indications that Christies will close this location to focus...More
One of the best experiences I've ever had was bidding at Christie's auction. The specialists were very knowledgeable, helpful and a pleasure to work with. The venue is very nice and comfortable. The selection of art outstanding. I highly recommend!
One the first Tuesday of every month Christie's holds an open evening at their branch in South Kensington. There is a talk, a pop-up bar, and you are free to walk around and look at the art which will later be auctioned. They sometimes have...More
Christie's Auction House was founded in 1766, and its main headquarters have been on King Street since 1823. As you enter the impressive building in St. James a wide staircase draws you up to the massive first floor galleries. Displays of items in upcoming sales...More
Do you want to see artwork that may not be seen again for years if not decades because it will be hanging in the living rooms of the superrich? Do you want to see it for free? Then come and see the pre-auction shows of...More
We went on a tour with a group of artists to Christie's. We had a wonderful time and the staff were so helpful. A special thank you to all the team there esp. Julie for all her help and useful information. We really enjoyed it
Sellers beware! Christies commission charges for selling your antiques are truly outrageous, especially as they also take 25% plus VAT from the buyer. I was even charged £150 for a photograph to appear in their catalogue. For items up to a few thousand pounds you...More
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing
junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.

We have been a number of times and they have been very welcoming. The web site shows public/exhibition times as well as details of exhibitions at any one time. We have always found there is an excess of treasures on exhibit and, after a couple of hours, tend to get a "bit cultured out". To make the most of our time, we tend to browse the collections on the web site ( there is a link on each exhibition) to identify our "must sees" and then browse at leisure.
