Visit to the Supreme Court of the UK, Parliament Square, London
Friday April 22nd. 2016 at 3pm
The Supreme Court of the UK was established to achieve a complete separation between
the UK’s senior judges and the Upper House of Parliament, emphasising the independence
of the Law Lords and increasing the transparency between Parliament and the Courts.
However, its roots go back 800 years. The Supreme Court, as it is today, came into being in
August 2009 when the Justices moved out of the House of Lords into their own building.
They sat for the first time as a Supreme Court in October 2009. Their new base is in the 1913
building, the Middlesex Guildhall, which housed the Middlesex Crown Courts and Quarter
Sessions until 1964, and is just over the road from the Houses of Parliament.
