The Royal Court Building has existed on its present site since the early 1800s, although the original building has been substantially redeveloped and extended on a number of occasions since then.  One of the most significant extensions was completed in 2005 and this was followed by a major refurbishment of the original "historic" buildings.

  • Criminal and civil court proceedings
