Nightingale courts status interactive map
‘Nightingale courts’ were launched in July 2022 as part of the government's court recovery plan, and to help the justice system recover from the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19).
We created an interactive map which shows the location of open Nightingale courts, as well as the type of work being heard in these venues and the number of court rooms at each site.
Nightingale courts will remain open in 2023 at 11 sites:
- Birmingham, Maple House
- Blackpool, former Fleetwood Magistrates’ Court
- Croydon, Leonardo Hotel
- former Chichester Crown Court
- former Cirencester Magistrates’ Court
- London, Barbican, Aldersgate House

If you require technical support for a telephone or video hearing call 0300 303 0655.
The Courts and Tribunals Service Centres will be available from 8am to 5pm, Monday to Thursday, and 8am to 4pm on Fridays until further notice.
