The Old Bailey is the name of the the Central Criminal Court of England which is located in London. It's called the Old Bailey because of the street on which it stands. The public is allowed in to observe the trials which can be major criminal cases. The judges still wear those powered wigs as shown in the Rumpole series.
When we were in London we thought we would go to the Old Bailey to see if there were any interesting trials going on. It took us awhile to find the place and when we arrived it was almost time for lunch so they said we should come back. We didn't have a chance to do that but I did have my picture taken in front of the Old Bailey.
