If you are in the area, across from the Houses of Parliament, you should take in the Supreme Court, its free. We were able to visit all three court and view the wonderful architecture.

We had an extremely interesting tour of the Supreme Court On Tuesday. Visited all three Courts and Learned a lot about the origins and workings of this relatively new institution.

The Supreme Court is the final court of appeal in the UK for civil cases, and for criminal cases from England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Located next to Parliament Square in Westminster, the court is housed in Middlesex Guildhall. Best underground station is Westminster station.

Beautiful building we came across in the Parliament Square area. Surprising, it's open to the public. Very interesting especially if you're a lawyer or judge!

A lot of historical information and education about the law of the land. Stories of ancient as well as current legal cases. Good displays!

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
