Visits from overseas education institutions, summer schools and commercial third parties

Please note that during the school year, the Supreme Court offers free education visits for UK schools, colleges and universities and the tours are tailored to each group's curriculum requirements.

Education institutions from overseas, organisers of summer schools arranged on a commercial basis between education organisations, English as a Foreign Language groups, and third parties who profit from organising education groups, can instead book an official guided tour which are charged at £48 (£40 + VAT = £48) per group (maximum 25 students).

This nominal fee is charged in order to regulate the number of such parties, reduce late cancellations and to help reduce the Court's demands on public resources.

Alternatively institutions can visit the court free of charge and conduct a self-guided tour. However we do request that you notify us in advance of your visit so that we know to expect you and we can let you know if there are any court events or closures on that particular day.

How to book an educational guided tour at The Supreme Court

If you are interested in booking a guided tour, please complete the Educational guided tour booking form and send it to Enquiries so that we can check availability on your requested date(s).

Please note that we are unable to take bookings for tours between 1200 and 1400.

Due to high demand we advise that visits are booked at least 10 weeks in advance of your proposed visiting date, in order to avoid disappointment.

Our catering team offer a special deal for visiting groups, with a packed lunch offered for £5.50 per head. This can be arranged directly with our catering team by using the form below, and payment must be made in advance in a single payment covering all the students. Lunches ordered in this way can be consumed in our café area or taken out of the building.
