The Supreme CourtThe Supreme Court, the highest court in the United Kingdom, is housed in the former Middlesex Guildhall, an impressive Portland stone building by Scottish architect James S Gibson, built between 1864 and 1951, with decorative external sculptures by Henry Fehr. Playing an important historic role and location, the building is situated opposite the Houses of Parliament and flanked by the Treasury and Westminster Abbey and has been directly linked with justice and the law for the best part of a millennium. Today, the building houses courtrooms, a magnificent triple-height law library, and public areas including a cafe and exhibition area.
