A fascinating building that has survived from mediaeval times. Take the audio tour and choose one of six periods in English history to follow the life and times of the building. The small tea shop is well worth a visit, with home made cake and an excellent pot of tea. Activities were available for children as well as many opportunities... More

Empty building. No guides to show you around or answer questions. Just a pitiful audio tour and no information or guidebook available. Would not waste my money on a visit again.

A very imformative place to visit, especially if you are interested in the Civil War. The staff are very knowledgable with hands on activities ,such as how to load a cannon .It is all set in a wonderful old building.

This is a collection of cojoined houses bedside the bridge at the town entrance next to the canal. The rooms are mainly empty but what a place. It has a Tudor great hall, a beautiful Georgian house, lovely garden and a small cafe adjoining the canal. It is owned by the council and the people working there are really helpful.... More

A must when visiting Worcester due to Worcester being the last battle of the The Civil War. Good handsets give a commentary as you wander at leisure thought the building.

I really enjoyed visiting The Commanderyy amazing building and views. I think it would be more popular if tickets cost £3 and they had special offers for groups and made the most of all the language schools in Summer. Great shop too.

The hugely impressive Commandery has a long and complicated history, with a variety of almost incompatible uses. It is a miracle it has survived at all. Now the huge building contains very few artefacts, so the curator has organised an audio guide referring to possible room use in each major epoch. The upside is that in an hour you get... More

What a history ! Beautiful building in a lovely location. Visit the gardens, overlooked by the mound where the final battle and death of Lord Hamilton took place in the civil war with Cromwell. The history of the building, much more than 'just' a house/home fascinating. Easily missed as immediately on left over canal bridge, fronting main road on a... More
