Set in the heart of Worcester, The Commandery is one of the oldest buildings in the city and has lots of character and charm. The property has been used as a Medieval hospital, civil war battle headquarters, the Georgian home of an influential local family, a college for the blind, a printworks, and it is now the site of a fascinating museum. The venue is stunning from every angle, with a new photo opportunity around every corner. From timber-framed walls and great wooden doorways to beautiful brickwork, Georgian windows and the charming canal, there is much to admire and enjoy.
The charming walled gardens look onto the picturesque Georgian wing and the lawn stretches towards Fort Royal Hill, framed by wonderfully- maintained flowerbeds, trees and redbrick walls.
