  • A good way to get exposure to the legal system in the UK. It looks like court hearings tend to start at 10 or 10:30. Even if you arrive at the end of the day, you can still see the beautiful building ...  read more »
  • There are loads of amazing buildings in London; and this is certainly one of them. Worth taking a look if you're walking past but not iconic.

  • This also a nice spot for selfie or wefie but please be careful with the traffic
  • amazing exterior. beautiful to photograph at night
  • This is a stunning building that looks more like a cathedral than a courthouse! Many people walk past it and don't realise they can actually go inside, which is a great pity as the interior is just as awesome as the exterior. It is a working court so you do have to clear airport style security to get inside, but it's never too much of a hassle and the staff are very friendly. Once inside you'll find the courtrooms themselves up the stairs to the right and left of the main hall. The great things is you can actually sit in on the court cases and watch the barristers(lawyers) at work and it's pure theatre. There are Civil cases, such as insurance, but there are also Criminal appeal cases and these can be quite juicy. Be warned though, no photographs are allowed once you are inside.
  • Impressive design both as the Royal courts of Justice and as a wedding venue in the evening
  • Stunning architecture and very good place to visit in the open house weekend.
