The Royal Courts of Justice (London's High Court) is an enchanting building on London's Fleet Street.  

The building is reminiscent of a cathedral in both style and scale. Soaring arches and beautiful stained glass windows ornamented with the coats of arms of Lord Chancellors and keepers of the Great Seal, combine with a mosaic marble floor leading to a maze of enchanting corridors to create a majestic setting or exciting visit to one of London's best kept secrets.

Located on the Strand and just a few minutes from London's Theatreland. A visit to London would not be complete without seeing the Royal Courts of Justice.
