Facilities & Additional Information
The Commandery is located in Worcester City centre on the main A44 just three minutes’ walk from the Cathedral and the High Street. Worcester Foregate Street and Worcester Shrub Hill stations are both 1km from The Commandery.
The Commandery offers a level access entrance to museum visitors, lifts and an accessible toilet and cafe. Guide dogs and assistance dogs are also welcome.
There is limited parking to the rear of the building for up to 10 cars. Taxis and coaches may pull in to drop off or pick up guests. Dedicated parking can be arranged at a nearby council car park.
Toilets and baby changing facilities
In addition to the accessible toilets and baby changing facilities, the Wedding Suite has its own private toilet facilities.
Due to its nature as a historic building, we are unable to accommodate smoking anywhere on the site.
The Commandery looks stunning when dressed for special occasions, and we will work with you to ensure that although we cannot fix decorations to the walls, we can still make the building look spectacular.
Play your part to look after a special building
By choosing to get married at The Commandery, you are helping us to take care of it for generations to come, thank you!
To help us look after this Grade I listed building, we ask our guests to understand that we are unable to accommodate naked flames or decorations that pierce the walls of the building, and that smoking is not permitted on site. We also want to bring history to life for everyone, which means that we are open to visitors every day (except Mondays) until 5pm, and we adjust the visitor route accordingly when a wedding starts before this time. Finally, we respect our neighbours’ peace as we are based in a residential area and so finish our events by 11pm.
The Commandery has been approved by Worcestershire County Council as a venue for marriage in pursuance of Section 26(1)(bb) of the 1949 Act, and the formation of civil partnerships under section 6(3A)(a) of the 2004 Act.
This approval does not state or imply any recommendation of the premises or its facilities by the County Council, the Registrar General or any of the officers or employees of either of them.
