About this business

Opening times, reviews & more

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

The Commandery is the perfect place for a family day out – get to know your fearsome weapons, discover historic displays, and become an explorer in the spacious walled gardens. Experience a pivotal moment in English history in the interactive exhibition Worcester's Civil War Story, discover wood-panelled Tudor rooms, and marvel at the medieval Great Hall and beautifully preserved Painted Chamber.

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

The Commandery has an exciting programme of events all year - from spooky after-dark tours in autumn to fun family activities in the school holidays.
