Royal Court Building

The Royal Court Building has existed on its present site since the early 1800s, although the original building has been substantially redeveloped and extended on a number of occasions since then.  One of the most significant extensions was completed in 2005 and this was followed by a major refurbishment of the original "historic" buildings.

Today, the Court Building caters for a very wide range of activity, including:

  • Criminal and civil court proceedings
  • Registration of births, deaths and marriages
  • Registration of property conveyances
  • Marriage ceremonies
  • Archives and research
  • Meetings of Guernsey's parliament, the States of Deliberation
  • Civic Receptions
  • Ceremonial Occasions
