Royal Courts of Justice and Rolls Building

Watch justice as it happens at the Royal Courts of Justice, commonly called the Law Courts.

The court is located on the Strand in central London and houses both the High Court and Court of Appeal of England and Wales. Designed by George Edmund Street, who died before it was completed, it is a large grey stone building in the Gothic style built in the 1870s and opened by Queen Victoria in 1882.
