Bow Street Magistrates' Court has existed at various sites on Bow Street in Central London since 1740.

The most recent site of the Magistrates' Court, and the building in which Sebastian's case would have been heard, ceased functioning as a courtroom in 2006. 

Various famous defendants, including Oscar Wilde, have appeared at Bow Street prior to pleading their cases before higher courts.
