Thanksgiving at The Commandery

Follow in the footsteps of future US Presidents Thomas Jefferson and John Adams to “the ground where Liberty was fought for” and mark the city’s significant American connection and history of Thanksgiving in Worcester Commandery; a beautiful building with an 800-year history.

The birthplace of Edward Winslow, Worcestershire has significant connections to the story of the Mayflower. Winslow was born and raised in Driotwich Spa and educated at the King's School at Worcester Cathedral. He later travelled to Leiden and became one of the senior leaders of the Mayflower, going on to sign the historic Mayflower Compact.

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.
