Supreme Courts

Door open days


Parliament House is set back from the busy Royal Mile. The name of the original building in the 1630s was ‘The Parliament House’, however since that time it has applied to the collection of buildings associated with the Supreme Courts in Scotland. The lobby within Parliament House gives direct access to Parliament Hall, which once served as the meeting place of the Scottish Parliament and the Outer House of the Court of Session.
