Tai Kwun, located at Hollywood Road, Central, is a centre for heritage and arts. It comprises three groups of magnificent buildings: the former Central Police Station, Central Magistracy and Victoria Prison.

After a decade of conservation and revitalisation works, Tai Kwun was opened to the public in phases starting from 2018. Under the joint partnership between the Hong Kong Jockey Club and The Government of the HKSAR, Tai Kwun represents one of the most significant revitalisation projects in Hong Kong. The historic buildings, together with 2 new buildings (including JC Contemporary and JC Cube) and outdoor spaces, offer various multi-purpose venues for a wide range of programmes, exhibitions and performances for the public to cultivate their knowledge and appreciation of arts and history in the community.

The former Central Police Station, Central Magistracy and Victoria Prison were declared monuments in 1995.
