    Finally I got into the old Crown House in Leicester! I've been waiting for ages to get into this one and I'm still wondering how I managed to get in on a very busy Friday afternoon. Anyway, in terms of history all I know is that it used to have some court rooms (now demolished) and some offices. What's left are just empty office rooms, so I've not bothered to post any shots from inside-sorry if you find that annoying, but if you visited it then maybe you'd understand why it's a bit pointless. So below I've got some shots of the nice view that you get from being there.

    Nice photos mate,
    I know a few people who are interested in this place, so if you could post up some internals, even if they are just empty rooms, im sure someone would appreciate em :)

    you did well to get in on a busy afternoon
    the only bit worth taking photos off is the foyer and some seats bolted to the floor from the DHSS days

    Cheers, added some new images now from last night.
    Getting in took about 25 mins so we did VERY well not to be seen ha!
    I saw that foyer bit last night but it was too dark to get a snap and I didn't have flash.

    Put some more shots up now :thumb

    I didn't even bother taking any because it was so bad, I'd advise you check out matt donut's post as he has 1 or 2 from the indside. (There's an okay bit I saw last night but it was too dark, didn't see it on my first visit.)

    I was here with a couple of mates last night. We tried to get in, but as it was a spur of the moment decision, we failed. Probably take a bit of kit and have another go sometime.
