Currently being renovated at the front it’s a grand design that over shadows the whole area. Even approaching it from the front a few hundred metres away you are in awe of its size. Inside nice but only seen a small amount of the building....More

It already does look bigfrom the outside, reminding me a bit of St.Peters in the Vatican. On the last day of the year, you could just walk in and have a look around, which was nice. Lots of marble floors, high ceilings, making you feel...More

Amazing building and super large, this 19th century impressive building was built in the style of a classical temple and was completed in 1883. It is still home to the city's law courts.

Never seen anything that massive before. Inside is magnificent and so grand. You are free to walk around after you pass security control. We spent maybe 30 minutes walking around inside and outside. No fee to go in. Could do with some maintenance, sadly! Recommended...More

This is a huge building which is dominating the skyline. It is covered in scaffolding and I understand it has been like this for 15-20 years. It will be amazing when it is finished but I expect it will not be anytime soon!
