The Shire Hall used to be the seat of justice for the County of Nottinghamshire. It was built at a cost of 2500 in the 1770's and was designed by architect James Gandon .  Joseph Pickford of Derby was the builder.  It ceased to be a court in the 1980's and is now The National Justice Museum dedicated to the history of the justice system. It was formerly known as The Galleries of Justice

The site also housed the County Prison. The County Court and Prison occupied this site for centuries prior to the erection of this building. The Prison and even older dungeons on the site are part of the museum which is well worth a visit.  It's a great history lesson for all ages but especially for children for whom there are special facilities.  Click here to vsit their website
