The Commandery





The Commandery is the perfect place for a family day out - get to know your fearsome weapons, get stuck into our interactive displays or become a Commandery explorer with our trail backpacks. The Commandery also has its own gardens and an independent café, Commandery Coffee, which serves delicious home-made food, artisan coffee and loose leaf teas.

Encounter the past brought to life in a beautiful building with an 800 year history. 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 1651.

Discover Worcester's Civil War Story, an interactive experience that will take you back over 350 years into a murky, conflicted 17th century Worcester of fiery debates. Experience life as a soldier 300 miles from home, test your skills at battle strategy and come face-to-face with Oliver Cromwell.
