A village in central London
Old Sessions House is located at 23 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 businesses 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 2019, around 35,000 people attended this three-day festival.
The area is also one of London’s top culinary destinations with Luca Exmouth Market, St. John and The Modern Pantry. Old Sessions House has many fashionable neighbours including Alexander McQueen and Fred Perry. Other notable resident companies are, Unilever, LinkedIn and Publicis Amazon to name a few.

Old Sessions House is located around the corner from the exceptionally well connected Farringdon Station, which will be the flagship for Crossrail anticipated to open in 2022. 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.
The location is served extremely well by underground lines at Farringdon and Chancery lane stations giving access to Central, District, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & city lines within minutes.
A multitude of train lines depart either directly from Farringdon station or nearby Kings Cross for longer journeys and will together with the opening of Crossrail serve 3 airports directly (Heathrow, Gatwick and Luton).
