Supreme Court

The final court of appeal for any legal case in the UK, the Supreme Court has long since played a central role in the development of the law on these green isles. The impressive Neo-Gothic design of the building contains a rich history for visitors who are present in a non-legal capacity, beginning life as the Middlesex Guildhall in 1913.

Late 2009 saw it established as the Supreme Court, overseeing both civil and criminal appeals that have been passed through the lower rungs of the legal process. If you are interested in witnessing an appeal in action, visitors can sit in during courtroom hearings, explore the exhibition lower down in the building, or take the guided tour to understand its role in the full context of British law.
