When visiting London with my wife and daughter, we were in Parliament Square, having viewed the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey; we were desperate for a cup of coffee, and I noticed a sign outside a splendid Art Nouveau building (next to the statue of Abraham Lincoln) advertising coffee for £1.90. We went in and were astonished to find ourselves in the Middlesex Guildhall, now home to the Supreme Court. Having passed through the airport style security we were free to wander round an architectural gem of a building and had public access to the case in progress. This is true open justice.
In the basement is a small but perfectly formed exhibition area with information and artefacts of the Supreme Court and the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council. Oh and there's also a cafeteria serving a fine cup of coffee!
