The Supreme Court, the highest court in the UK, was the Appellate Committee of the House of Lords until 2009. It is now housed in the neo-Gothic Middlesex Guildhall (1913), and members of the public are welcome to observe cases when the court is sitting (Monday to Thursday).

For who or what's on trial, ask for a list at reception, or go to the Current Cases page of the court's website. On the lower ground floor there's a permanent exhibition looking at the work and history of the UK’s highest court as well as the building's history. The self-guided tour booklet is £1; tours are also available on Fridays (£5; 11am, 2pm and 3pm).
