The Judicial Committee usually hears its cases in the United Kingdom.  Until 2009, it sat in the Council Chamber in Downing Street, in a building designed by Sir John Soane. Since that time, it has been co-located with The Supreme Court on Parliament Square.

Occasionally the Judicial Committee is also invited to consider an appeal in the jurisdiction where it originated, and several recent hearings have taken place in the Caribbean and Mauritius.
