The Magistrates' Court is a building on Dale Street, Liverpool which was used for court hearings until 2015. It is a Grade II listed building designed by John Grey Weightman built between 1857 and 1859 and contains 3 historic court rooms plus cells etc. In 2007 it was announced that the Dale Street building would close and be replaced by a new purpose built set of courts. It is currently vacant and not open to the public - in 2019 plans were submitted to turn it into a boutique hotel and in 2021 into a student complex. It is thought to be owned by HM Courts and Tribunals Service.
