Preston Crown Court or more properly the Crown Court at Preston is a criminal court in Preston, Lancashire. The court is based on two sites in the city; Preston Combined Court Centre on Ringway and Sessions House on Lancaster Road.[1] A first tier court centre, the court deals with all types of cases that are heard in the Crown Court as well as being a trial centre for civil High Court cases. The court house is also the location for Preston County Court where smaller civil cases and family cases are dealt with.[1]

The current combined court centre building was opened in 1996 and was designed by Alistair Sutherland of architects Austin-Smith:Lord.[2]
