  Venetian splendour

Favorite thing: Famous from 145 different films or television mini-series set in London and dealing with the difficult path from Crime to Punishment, the Law Courts are a symbol of Britain's pride in its Common Law traditions. Architect G.E. Street designed the building in the 1870s as a Gothic Palace in its own way every bit as magnificent as the Palace of Parliament. Here are 64 courts, 7 miles of corridor, and over 1000 rooms.

The main entrance to the Courts is off the Strand, but my photo shows the Carey Street side.
