Building and Registry

The Supreme Court building

Please note that The Supreme Court building will be closed on Monday 27 August 2018, because of the August Bank Holiday.


Please note that during both August and September the Registry will be open from 1000 to 1400 only.

Please also note that the Registries of both the Supreme Court and the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council will be closed for 2 weeks during the Summer vacation period.

The Registry will close at 1400 on Friday 24 August 2018 and will reopen at 1000 on Monday 10 September 2018.

Supreme Court staff present in the building while the Registry is closed will not be able to accept papers on behalf of the Court.

If your time limit for filing documents expires on a business day during this vacation period, it will be extended automatically until 10 September. This is provided for by UKSC Practice Direction 2.1.8 and JCPC Practice Direction 2.1.8.

(Please note that this does not mean that documents due on or after 10 September 2018 are subject to any automatic extension.)
