A VILLAGE
IN CENTRAL
LONDON

Old Sessions House is located at 22 Clerkenwell Green in the heart of Clerkenwell. The area was traditionally associated with breweries, distilleries, the printing industry and highly skilled crafts such as watch and clock making. Currently, with more creative business per square mile than anywhere else in the world, Clerkenwell is London’s hub for creativity with a strong sense of community.

Clerkenwell is certainly one of central London’s most exciting urban villages. Each spring, the neighbourhood hosts Clerkenwell Design Week, a key event in the global design calendar at which brands like Herman Miller, Vitra and Zaha Hadid open their showrooms and exhibit their designs. In 2015, more than 35,000 people attended this three-day festival.

The area is also one of London’s top culinary destinations with Exmouth Market, St. JOHN and The Modern Pantry. Old Sessions House has many fashionable neighbours including Agent Provocateur, Alexander McQueen, Fred Perry and Ben Sherman. See the map for local restaurants and tenants.

CONNECTING
EAST AND WEST
LONDON

Old Sessions House is located around the corner from the exceptionally well-connected Farringdon Station, which will be the flagship for Crossrail opening in 2018. When fully open, an estimated 140 trains per hour will flow through the Farringdon interchange, and it will be the only station through which passengers will be able to access all three networks – making it one of Britain’s busiest train stations.

Crossrail is estimated to bring an additional 1.5 million people within 45 minutes’ commuting distance of London’s key business districts.

Currently, transport links are excellent: Farringdon Station (National Rail, Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines), Chancery Lane (Central line) and King’s Cross (National Rail, Eurostar service, Metropolitan, Hammersmith & City, Circle, Northern, Victoria and Piccadilly lines). The Thameslink rail service provides quick and regular service to Brighton via Gatwick Airport, and Bedford via Luton Airport.
