- Old Bailey Visits -
'Interested in crime? Thinking about visiting the most famous court in the world? Then you are in the right place. '

BY BOOKING ONLY

For as little as 6 a head I can make your day at the Old Bailey one to remember. I will guide you straight to the most interesting cases after giving you a talk on the fascinating history of the court.

Let me share the knowledge I have built up working as a crime reporter for over two decades at the Old Bailey.  

Your day will begin with a talk, in which I will show you where the public hangings took place, the pub, where the wealthy rented rooms to get the best view of the executions and other historical points of interest.

That is not all. Each visitor receives as part of my exclusive service a three/five-page run down of everything going on in the 18 courts and told which cases to view and what time they are on.   If there is an interesting trial on you will know about it, if one of the country's top criminal barristers is in action you can be there to witness advocacy at its best.   There is also a two-page history sheet for you to keep.  

For schools, colleges and universities I provide a special teachers information pack as part of the service. This is sent out before your visit and gives teachers all the information they need to prepare a lecture or class so students come to the court knowing what to look for and properly informed.

The pack includes important historical dates in the court's 1,000 year history, an outline of the English Justice System and how it compares with other country's legal systems, what sentences criminals can expect if convicted of certain crimes and a guide to the lay out of the court.   Everything a student should know to enhance their day at court.

 

Just call 01206 756386
or e-mail me at obinsight@hotmail.com

 

This is what customers, who have used my service have said:

John Thornley, a tutor at Eastbourne College in Sussex:  
' A fantastic insight and much appreciated by all who were there.' Fascinating for those of us who have never set foot in a court before (luckily!).

Susanna Shaw
, Royal Hospital School, Ipswich:   ' we had a lovely day - very interesting talk. Specially liked the bit about people buried in lime ... We will be back again next year I have no doubt.

Stuart Hunt, American tourist: 'Fantastic service, I really enjoyed my day at the court. Your information was a great help. Happy to recommend your service.

 Tina Carling, Legal studies tutor, Plater College Oxford: 'Students had a very enjoyable, pleasurable and informative day. Thank you for the interesting historical background you gave before we went into court. It set the scene very well'

Jill Hamblin, head of English at Colchester Boys High School, Essex: 'the boys greatly enjoyed the day. They were thrilled especially those who got into the gangland murder trial.'

Paula Chorlton, Oxford tutor: 'Got really positive feedback about the tour from my students and will definitely recommend it to others.'

 

SPECIAL NOTICE

We have been asked to point out that strict security measures make it impossible for visitors to go into the main body of the building. You will only have access to the public galleries to view trials. (It is a bit like being in the balcony seats of a small theatre.) Admittance to the galleries is free as it is a public building. You may have to queue to gain admittance to a particular case if the public gallery is full. There is no wheel chair access to the old Bailey public galleries.
