A fascinating visit
9/2020 • Pariskunnat
We visited as part of the Open House weekend and really appreciated the efforts made to make a visit possible when so many buildings and organizations had not felt able to take part in the programme this year. It’s a beautiful building and you gain a fascinating insight into how the highest court in the land works. Good cafe too!

Beautiful Building / Small Museum / Nice Cafe
1/2020
Across Parliament Square from the Palace of Westminster, in what was once the Middlesex Guildhall, sits the Supreme Court of the UK. Visitors are welcome to visit the historic and beautiful court building. In the basement is a small museum, a very nice cafe and clean toilets. You can also watch the live court proceedings from there. You have to pass though an airport style security check to get in but, liquids are fine (I had a bottle of water with me).

Saw this impressive building and the saw the sign to visit for free. Took advantage and what a great building. Went in court 2 which is very modern, but the jewels are courts 1 and 3. They are both original and have so much history attached. Great free attraction

Absolutely a must see
1/2020 • Pariskunnat
I just visited the Supreme Court. I got to sit in the chairs that the judges sit in. It was incredible. I also talked with the executive chair of the court and he explained everything to me. It was a once in a lifetime experience. Go see this amazing place where decisions are made that affect the lives of every UK citizen. I would never be allowed to be this close in the US Supreme Court.

Magnificent exterior
1/2020 • Soolomatka
Wish I could have seen the interior, but I arrived at the same time as a huge school party and didn’t have the time to wait until they had been admitted. But the exterior is a wonderful example of early 20th century gothic architecture. The exquisitely carved stone statues and friezes on the front elevation are gorgeous. I shall be back another time to see the interior.

Guided Tour
9/2019
Excellent and very interesting. We had booked this months ahead so really lucky to visit in such a momentous week. I shall treasure the photo of me sitting in one of the judges's seats in Court Room 1. Had tea and cake afterwards in the cafe, which was nice and peaceful downstairs. Great value tour at concession rate of £5 per head.

Courtroom Drama
9/2019 • Pariskunnat
This is the highest court in the United Kingdom. The Law Lords used to be based in the House of Lords but ten years ago a new location was found for them close to Parliament. It is the former Guildhall for Middlesex County Council and there are several reminders of the building's former use. The logo reflects the four regions of the UK namely 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 (rose) and 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 (leek); 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 (thistle) and Northern Ireland (flax flower) that have their separate courts. When the court is sitting, you can watch the proceedings. When it is in recess as it is at the moment, you can visit all three courtrooms. The largest courtroom on the top floor is the former County Council chamber. Downstairs there is an exhibition and a cafe. At the entrance there is a war memorial in memory of soldiers from the Middlesex Regiment including council staff who were killed in WWI.

A lovely architectural piece the building is history in action. You are able to enter courtrooms where live cases are being heard.The cafe was somewhat disappointing with very little on offer and very little space

Impressive
8/2019 • Soolomatka
This is an impressive architectural building, home to the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom which, as of writing this review, is the second highest court of appeal one from England, Wales and Northern Ireland can take a civil or criminal case. The Court of Justice of the European Union (ECJ), until 31st October 2019 when the U.K. leaves the European Union, is currently the highest.
