Galleries of Justice Museum, Nottingham

Galleries of Justice Museum, Nottingham (must see)

The Galleries of Justice Museum also known as the Shire Hall, is an independent museum and a registered charity on High Pavement in the Lace Market area of Nottingham. The courtrooms date back to the 14th century and the gaol dates back to at least 1449. The prisons are still there. There was also a working police station from 1905 to 1985, and the courts closed in 1986. The museum is housed in what was once a Victorian courtroom, Gaol and Police station and is therefore a historic site where you could be arrested, sentenced and executed.
