Trip to the Supreme Court, London

 27 April 2018 (Friday)                    £20.00 per person 

Visit the beautiful courtrooms as well as the magnificent Justices' Library, which is not normally open to the public. In addition to your tour you are welcome to visit the exhibition area where you can spend time at leisure browsing the information on display.

Your tour will be led by an experienced member of staff who will: 
  • · give an introduction to the Court's role in the UK justice system,
  • · explain about the history and artwork of the building,
  • · give interesting examples of cases heard by the Court,
  • · answer any questions which you may have.
You will be allocated to either the 2pm or 3pm tour.

When you are not on your tour or exploring the library and exhibition are you might want to relax with a cup of tea or light meal in the Supreme Court café or venture out to neighbouring cafes.  e.g. Wesleys Café http://www.c-h-w.com/cafe/ is an amazing find for central London and more can be found easily on Trip Advisor

It is possible the tour will include all three of the courtrooms but, in the event that one of them needs to be used for an urgent court matter or event, the tour route might be amended slightly, whilst still covering all the same subject matter. Tours last about an hour.
The Supreme Court building is fully adapted for disabled access, with lifts to all floors but please be mindful that you will need to walk to and from wherever the coach is able to ‘drop us off’.

The coach departs from Ram Meadow Car Park, Bury St Edmunds at 10am; leaves London after the second tour which is likely to be 16.15 or shortly thereafter.
