Quartiere: Città di Londra
Dall'antico ruolo di frontiera commerciale romana al miglio quadrato più ricco del mondo nel XXI secolo, il quartiere finanziario conosciuto semplicemente come "La City" è uno dei quartieri più storici e affascinanti di Londra. Qui, edifici commerciali altissimi, come il grattacielo Gherkin di Norman Foster, si mescolano con rovine romane e altri esempi da manuale di meraviglie architettoniche di ogni epoca, tra cui la gloriosa Cattedrale di St. Paul di Christopher Wren e l'imponente e classica Bank of England di John Soane. Questo quartiere ospita anche alcuni dei migliori ristoranti e degli hotel più sfarzosi d'Europa, per non parlare dei tanti luoghi di ritrovo, negozi di lusso e stazioni della metropolitana. Durante la settimana, la City è animata dal viavai dei colletti bianchi, mentre nel fine settimana il quartiere diventa un tranquillo rifugio per i turisti.

Visited the Old Bailey for the tour yesterday with friends and what a great experience it was. Our guide Jo was brilliant, she had a great knowledge of the building and its history ,we also listened with great interest to Jay who actually worked in the courts and explained a bit more regarding day to day running of the most famous court in the world.
If you are in London and can get tickets for this tour it is definitely worth going ,it was brilliant.

Recently did the guided tour and it was amazing. You find out the history of the building and the architecture of the main area is stunning. We went into a couple of the courts and also the cells & the judges dining room.

We found out so much information from the guides about the running of the courts & the history. A must do tour.

I've been to the Old Bailey a hand full of times now. As you will have probably read, it is very strict and you aren't allowed to take a number of items in with you including mobiles, smart watches, air tags, lighters, food, drink etc. There is a list of prohibited items somewhere if you google it. You can leave items at the Capable Travel Agents just down the road for a fee. It's £2 per item. If you want your mobile back for lunch, you will have to pay another £2 to give it back to them. I think there are other places but I havent personally used them. I think bags are more than £2 but not sure exactly how much. If you take a bag into the court it needs to be no larger than roughly an A4 piece of paper. Queues start forming around 9:30am. Friends and family take priority in the queue and go through first. You will go through security and be scanned. You can then head to which ever court room you want where you will wait to be taken there by the court staff. I went to see a high profile case and unfortunately there was a lot of waiting around in the stairwell. I wish I took a book or newspaper. You must spend a minimum of 30 mins in the court room when you go in. Be prepared to be hungry and thirsty however, there are cones and a jug of water in the corridor by security on a desk. They don't offer it to anyone but just ask and you can help yourself. I drink a lot of water throughout the day generally, so I really struggled not having a bottle of water with me and to keep asking for small cones of water. Also be aware that they close toilets early so around 5 mins before lunch and 5 mins before courts end so its really unhelpful if you've been in court, break for lunch or go to leave for the day and cant use the toilet before heading out.

The tour of the Central Criminal Court, the Old Bailey, was excellent, and I would most certainly recommend it to anyone considering taking the Old Bailey tour. Our excellent guide, Mr Lionel Wright, made the tour immensely interesting, he supplied us with endless information and he also provided us with many historical illustrations of the Central Criminal Court, the former Newgate prison, the different courts we visited, and the tour of the Central Court cells. It was in all an excellent experience. Those on our tour even had the honour to meet the most senior judge, the Recorder, who talked to us of his many years experience at the Old Bailey. And I have every intention of taking the same tour once again. Thank you for a really excellent and memorable tour of the Central Criminal Court Mr Lionel Wright

The Old Bailey is also known as the Central Criminal Courts. It's located in the City of London and not too far from St Paul's Cathedral and Bank.

It is quite a grand building as you would expect and located on the top of the tower is the statue of the lady holding a sword and the scales of justice.

Courts 1 (the main, original court), 2 (high-security), 3, 4, 17 & 18 are accessed via an unmarked door near the corner on Newgate St (ring the bell!) but most cases are heard in the New Building, entrance in the tunnel of Warwick Passage, off Old Bailey street.
Queues start forming soon after 09:30 (morning sessions) and 13:30 (afternoon sessions), though doors don't usually open before 10 and 2. Friends and family of those involved have priority, and it takes up to a minute per person to get through security, so best to arrive early and know what you're permitted to take in, otherwise you'll be politely turned away. (An internet search will help: this site won't allow me to give a useful, non-promotional reference, but try "what's on at the old bailey today"). Galleries usually have 3 rows of about 12 seats, but the front rows cannot currently be used, so space is limited - the earlier you arrive the more likely you'll see the court you want.
Some courts might not be sitting on time for various reasons, and visitors get no help understanding what's going on (even the ushers have limited information), so research helps, e.g. news reports.
Most cases are of murder, often harrowing, but the formality helps protect the defendants and mitigates some of the chilling detail. Meticulous analysis and regular breaks can be tiring, but watching a cross-examining barrister challenge a witness or intimidate an evasive defendant is fascinating.

The best way to visit the Old Bailey .
An absolutely fantastic tour.
If you are interested in our judicial process, at the top, then this tour now running on Saturdays is a must.
Just hope I never have to see it from another ‘ darker’ side !
Great guides and in house leaders.

This was a fascinating experience at the old Bailey
You can go into the public gallery and watch the criminal cases
You have to remain quiet
No whispering, no pointing etc
But it’s well worth every minute spent in there
There is a very strict security check before they let you in
No phones/smart watches/Bluetooth earphones/cameras/food drink or even chewing gum in your bag
We left all our bags at Liverpool Street station
£7.50 for 3 hours
£15 for 24 hours
3 hours won’t be long enough!
There are other shops etc which people have mentioned round and about the old Bailey which will save your things
BUT I read where someone’s stuff got stolen so it’s at your own risk
I cannot wait to return

I'd already checked other reviews so I was well prepared for the protocol and formalities in getting into the public galleries at the Old Bailey. I went to Capable Travel (a short walk away) to deposit my phone and Bluetooth watch. Once inside, there was a bit of waiting but I was able to sit in on some interesting trials and see how the modern day trial process works. All the staff were very courteous and happy to help. Well worth a visit.

We were advised that there could be long queues so we caught a 6am train, stopped at Russell Square to store our electronics in a locker at 7.15 and arrived at the old bailey at 8am. The security guard on duty had a list of what's on in each court. He advised us to get some breakfast and return for 10am. The public entrance is via a tunnel with lighter stone archway. Thankfully the security guard showed us where this is.

We arrived back to the public entrance at 9.30. Shortly before 10 a few guards check the queue to ensure no one has any contravened items. Basically do not attempt to take in anything with blue tooth enabling. This includes earpods. The chap in front of us was rejected for wearing a smart watch.

Its wise to get prepared before you climb the first set of stars to the security check, removed belts, watches anything with metal. These get passed for separate checks.

Once through security you can replace these items. There are more steps. Each floor has approximately 4 courts. The staff there will inform what is on in which Court. If there isn't room you will have to wait outside in the stair well waiting for the opportunity to go in.

When you are permitted into the public gallery there are clear rules, no whispering, no pointing, just observe.

The objective was for my daughter to experience seeing a trial in action as she has applied to study law at University this year. School trips to the old bailey were cancelled due to covid. She gained a lot from the experience.

You can move from court to court, they prefer you to sit for at least 30 minutes. Always move from and to the courts in silence and do not discuss any case in the corridors of the court house.

After lunch, the door reopens at 2pm. Be in the queue for this at 1.30 - 1.45pm.
