Beautiful Courthouse on Centre Street. Lovely columns and large staircase in front. Would recommend checking out for architecture and legal lovers. If you're so inclined, the Supreme Court is next door at 60 Centre.

I felt the sheer size and age of the building and the buildings in the area beautiful. The stone work done by the craftsmen at the time it was built was brilliantly done

We have an interest in crminal law, so decided to visit the courts. You see the outside of the buildings on numerous TV programmes. We went inside, as they are public buildings. We even sat in on a murder trial, which was very interesting.

This where I have to go to deal with jury duty.Nuff said.It's quite a bore inside as well. Not worthwhile unless you have to come here and you don't.
