Medieval grandeur at the Royal Courts of Justice

The Royal Courts of Justice famously sits on London's Fleet Street, and is commonly referred to as the Law Courts. Inside is the High Court and Court of Appeal, and many landmark rulings have been made by judges in this very building. If you want to have a look around the majestic architecture and enchanting interiors, for a fee you can take a guided tour that's bookable online.

Discover London's legal district

The Law Courts are set in Temple, which is known to be the capital's legal area and is home to some of the city's most interesting architecture. The houses in the backstreets could be a snippet from a Charles Dickens' novel, and if you wander 5 minutes east then you'll stumble across the Old Bailey, where some of Britain's worst criminals have been brought to justice.

Visit the Temple Bar Memorial

While you are in the area, why not pay a visit to the Temple Bar Memorial? Located where Fleet Street meets The Strand, the impressive monument was designed by four Victorian artists and is topped by a bronze dragon known as the Griffin. Book lovers may recognise it from the description in Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities. Planning a trip to the Royal Courts Of Justice?
