Covent Garden

Bow Street Dusk

Bow Street Magistrates Court was historically the most famous court in England, located in the heart of Covent Garden opposite the Royal Opera House. The police station was home to the Bow Street Runners and both the courthouse and holding cells housed many famous defendants such as the Kray Twins and Oscar Wilde.

The new Bow Street Hotel will extend, retain, restore and celebrate the existing Magistrates Courthouse building and Police Station providing 91 guest rooms, a new restaurant and three bars. A Bow Street Police Museum will also be created in and around the original police cells on the ground floor.
