Visitors are welcome to observe the process of law in any of the 88 courtrooms, but very little happens in August and September. There are also two-hour tours on the first and third Tuesday of the month (11am or 2pm; pre-book on 020 7947 7684 or Cameras and children under 14 are not allowed on the premises.

Royal Courts of Justice says
The Royal Courts of Justice is home to both the High Court and Court of Appeal. This magnificent Gothic revival building opened in December 1882. The environment of the Royal Courts of Justice, coupled with the interactive tours and activities, really do make a unique, engaging visitor experience.

One of the most beautiful buildings in London. The guided tour is very interesting.
