The Royal Courts of Justice are an attraction well worth a visit. Close enough to Parliament, the Temple and The City. With stunning Victorian architecture, a small costume exhibition. The courts were designed by George Edmund Street and took more...more

I never thought that it’s possible to visit this incredible building! The Victorian Gothic style architecture of the RCJ is breathtaking! I did the self-guided tour and it’s easy to find your way around! The staff was also very friendly!

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit practically any taste or budget. With major attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
as well as popular areas such as Covent Garden and Soho all just a short walk away, Holborn is a smart base from which to explore London.
