Supreme Court Building Print
Courthouse ClocktowerBuilt in classic British colonial style the Supreme Court building in Belize City is complete with clock tower.

The original courthouse in Belize City was destroyed by fire in 1818 and in 1926 a new building was constructed to house the Supreme Court.  This grand old edifice has 4 clocks facing each of the cardinal points and is entered via an intricate ironwork stairway leading to the second-floor veranda.

The Supreme Court of Belize still holds several annual sessions on the second floor while the first floor houses a daily magistrate’s court.

Visiting Hours
The court is not opened to the general public. Nonetheless, the exterior of the building is a great backdrop for picture taking.
