spending a night in the slammer in the heart of Shoreditch? Well if you’d of asked us last week our answer would of definitely been NO, however now that The Courthouse Hotel is open we’ve changed our mind…Once an Old Magistrates Court and Police Station that housed the likes of Joe Orton and the Krays in the 60s, the Grade-II building has been fully transformed into a luxury boutique hotel.

Located on the fairly grubby end of Old Street The Courthouse Hotel now has 128 rooms including two Sky Line residences with private bar and mini-cinema lounges, swimming pool, spa, cinema, two lane bowling alley rooftop terrace, and prison cells repurposed as VIP booths in the bar – lock us in, lock us in!

Looks like we’ll about be hoping to get nicked this summer…
