Discover the Secrets of the Old Bailey with Sheriff Andrew Marsden
It's the most famous court in the world and its very name strikes fear in the heart of criminals. The Old Bailey - or the Central Criminal Court to give it its formal title - has been London's main criminal court for centuries. From the 12th century it was also a prison, the notorious Newgate, and a place of public execution.
Now you can go deep behind the scenes with the Non-Aldermanic Sheriff of the City of London, Liveryman Andrew Marsden, as your guide. The iconic Old Bailey is packed with secrets, sometimes grisly history, famous trials and unexpected artworks.
This special tour for Stationers is strictly limited to 20 people so book early!
Your visit will start once the legal work is done for the day, so you will have full access to the courts where justice has been meted out to our most notorious criminals.
Discover what it's like to be in the dock - or to be the judge! Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided and your ticket price of £35 includes a donation to the Sheriffs' and Recorder's Fund.
