NCCL Galleries of Justice

The historic site of Shire Hall, in the heart of Nottingham City's Lace Market, was in use as courts and prison from the 1780's to the 1980's - although there has been a court on the site since at least 1375 and a prison since 1449. Over the centuries, thousands of people have entered the building with a sense of dread for their future as many would have been imprisoned, sentenced, and sometimes even publicly executed on the gallows of the front steps…

Inside the imposing façade of the building you will find two grand Victorian Courtrooms, and a sprawling prison. There are a variety of cells available including Georgian cells, contemporary cells, and medieval pits cut out of the rock. However also housing a Police Station, a Victorian Classroom, a number of education spaces, and a large Victorian function room this site is ideal for a wide variety of locations.
