New London County is a county in the southeastern corner of the U.S. state of Connecticut. As of 2010, the population was 274,055. The total area of the county is 772 square miles (2,000 km2).

The same as all eight of Connecticut's counties, there is no county government and no county seat. In Connecticut, towns are responsible for all local government activities, including fire and rescue, snow removal and schools. In a few cases, neighboring towns will share some resources (e.g., water, gas, etc.). New London County is only a group of towns on a map. It has no governmental authority.

New London County was one of four original counties in Connecticut. They were formed May 10, 1666.
