About The Commandery

The Commandery is a Grade 1 listed building, making it one of Worcester’s most important historical sites.

Set in the heart of historic Worcester, it’s most famous for being the Royalist Headquarters during the deciding battle of the English Civil War – the Battle of Worcester 1651, a pivotal moment in the English Civil War,

Built on an early medieval chapel site, the Commandery has also been a monastic hospital, family home, and college for the blind.  

Worcestershire is said to be a very haunted county, with plenty of books written on the subject. Many historic buildings have even older origins. There are plenty of tales of ghostly goings-on across Worcestershire.

But, it has to be said that The Commandery has more than most.

The Duke of Hamilton, who lived there for a time, was seriously injured during the Battle of Worcester. He was carried back to The Commandery with blood pouring from his leg. He later died of his injuries and was buried under the floor of the building before being exhumed and reburied in Worcester Cathedral.

The Duke’s spirit haunts the Solar Room, the master’s living quarters. Visitors have felt a strange presence there. One man arrived early for a meeting and left with some haste, unable to explain what he had experienced but vowed never to return.
