Following a competition, the winning design by architects Aston Webb & Ingress Bell was used to create this beautiful Grade I listed building.
Queen Victoria laid the foundation stone in 1887 and the courts opened in 1891. Built by John Bowen and Sons, the front of the building is faced in a deep red terracotta with elaborate decoration all over.
Inside, the ornamentation continues within the Great Hall and the chandeliers were the first to be powered by electricity outside London.
