Located on the Strand is the England's primary civil court- the Royal Courts of Justice. Housed within a magnificent Gothic building, the courts handle many of the nation's most serious civil, libel and appeals cases. The building was the last Gothic revival building to be built in London and was designed by G E Street, it is thought that the strain of building such an enormous project led to Streets untimely death. Queen Victoria officially opened the Royal Courts of Justice in 1882.
