START is held at Saatchi Gallery on King's Road in London. The King's Road is Chelsea's arterial road and stretches through a vibrant and culturally rich area starting from Sloane Square - the site of the world-famous Royal Court Theatre. The road has long been synonymous with fashion and is home to numerous boutique and luxury clothing stores, as well as high-quality restaurants, cafes, bars and nightlife. The area is also a treasure trove of antiques stores, including the Chelsea Antiques Market.
Saatchi Gallery has its own restaurant - Gallery Mess - open Monday to Saturday 10:00am to 11:30pm and 10:00am to 7:00pm on Sundays.
