The former Middlesex Guildhall is now the Supreme Court of the UK. It is possible to visit for free and see the various courtrooms and learn the history of the building and the Court.

The security is tight (understandably) but the security guards were incredibly nice and friendly- a real credit to the court service. Security guards in the empty courts doubled as an informal guide, and were knowledgable and happy to chat to the visitors. We learned a...More

Definitely worth booking a tour. There is the opportunity to visit the three courts and if you are lucky, the library. Small cafe and shop. the tour provides a good overview of the legal system as well as interesting anecdotes. Airport style security screening.
