About Ennismore Sessions House

23 Clerkenwell Green
East Central London, EC1R 0NA

Step into Ennismore Sessions House, a grand Grade II listed building and magical setting for your special day. From intimate dinners to grand celebrations, Ennismore Sessions House provides a dreamy backdrop to both ceremonies and receptions.    

Located on the west side of Clerkenwell Green, the grand Palladian-style building has a rich and storied Past. Built in 1779 and opened in 1782, it was once the largest and busiest public courthouse in England, with its magnificent dome, inspired by the Roman Pantheon, saw thousands of trials take place.

Thieves, murderers and revolutionaries passed through its hallways and it’s where Oliver Twist, was taken for pickpocketing in Dickens’s London. When the courthouse moved in 1931, the building became the headquarters of Avery Scales. In the 1970s, it was acquired as a Masonic Lodge before being sold in 2013. Over its 235-year history, there have only been four proprietors and in 2018, Ennismore moved in. 

Think our space may be ‘The One’? When you book with us, you get exclusive hire of the entire venue from 12pm to midnight, including a dressing room for you to get ready in beforehand. And to ensure everything runs smoothly, we will appoint an event manager to help plan your big day. 

Our gorgeous building makes for the prettiest wedding pictures, benefiting from natural light and a variety of bright and airy spaces. From capturing those first precious moments after tying the knot to photographing the dancefloor in full swing, Ennismore Session House provides the perfect backdrop.
