Welcome to The Commandery

The Commandery is a beautiful building and garden where you can encounter the past brought to life…

Set in the heart of historic Worcester, it’s most famous for being the Royalist Headquarters during the deciding battle of the English Civil War – the Battle of Worcester 1651.

Built on the site of an early medieval chapel, The Commandery has also been a monastic hospital, family home, a college for the blind, and it housed the Littlebury Printworks before becoming today’s museum revealing significant stories of its city’s history.

With lots of history to uncover, gardens to explore, interactive fun and regular events, The Commandery is the perfect place for a family day out.

Round off your visit at the independent canal-side café on site, Commandery Coffee, which serves delicious home-made food, artisan coffee and loose-leaf teas.

Head to the Plan Your Visit page for opening times and admission information – including discounts for Worcester residents, season passes, and membership – or book your day tickets online.
