Inner London Crown Court

The Inner London Sessions House Crown Court, more commonly known as the Inner London Crown Court, is a Crown Court in London, United Kingdom. It is located in the Sessions House on Newington Causeway at the corner of Harper Road in the Newington area of the London Borough of Southwark in South London. There has been a judicial building on the site since 1794.


The Sessions House was opened in 1917 and had replaced the Middlesex Sessions House in Clerkenwell Green by 1921. From the creation of the County of London in 1889 until 1913 work had been shared between the Middlesex Sessions House and an earlier building at the Newington site. It was designated a Crown Court in 1971 and the building was extended in 1974 to provide ten courts.


Newington Gardens are immediately to the south east, formerly the location of Horsemonger Lane Gaol.
