Open Days and Open House London Weekend

Open Days and Open House London Weekend

Open Days

As in previous years, we are arranging additional access on a number of occasions in 2017, particularly during school holidays, to welcome those who might not be able to visit us during a normal working week.

Supreme Court library

On these special days we will be opening up the magnificent triple-height Library and Lawyers' Suite overlooking Parliament Square. We will also be providing an art trail showing off highlights from the Middlesex Guildhall Art Collection, a film introducing the work of the court showing at regular intervals, and creative activities for younger visitors.

The Open Days are taking place on:

  • Tuesday 30 May - 0930 to 1630
  • Wednesday 31 May - 0930 to 1630
  • Friday 25 August - 0930 to 1630
  • Tuesday 29 August - 0930 to 1630
  • Friday 15 September - 0930 to 1630

Open House London Weekend

The Supreme Court is also taking part in Open House London (16 to 17 September 2017) for the eighth year running, offering the same activities and access as above. Please note that the event has been very popular in past years (often with queues of around 20 minutes to gain access to the building) and we would encourage you to arrive early, certainly well ahead of 16:30, to avoid disappointment.

Our doors will be open from 09:30 to 16:30 (last admission) on each of these occasions, and entrance is free. Our cafe and gift shop on the lower ground floor will be open during these hours.

Open House London Weekend is taking place on the following dates:

  • Saturday 16 September - 0930 to 1630
  • Sunday 17 September - 0930 to 1630
