Hamilton Sheriff Court

Door open days

South Lanarkshire

This ‘Doors Open day’ Scotland-wide event, organised by the Scottish Civic Trust, enables people to visit hundreds of historic buildings such as Hamilton Sheriff Court, outside the normal operating hours of business. Come along and gain a valuable insight into the work of our Court. Sample the architecture and history of our building which is considered by Historic Scotland to be most appropriately recognised at category A, denoting national significance.

Mock trials will be made available to our visitors, including children, providing an insight into what can happen in our court rooms every day and the roles played by judges, lawyers, clerks, court officers, custody officers and witness service staff.  Some light hearted humour makes this both a fun and educational event for children to participate in.
