About Canterbury Village

Canterbury Village, a designated historical landmark in the State of Michigan, extends over 21 acres on what once was part of the old Scripps Farm. The Village is host to 14 specialty shops and has many distinctive features. The recently re-located Aldridge's Always Christmas store is one of the largest and most unique Christmas stores anywhere!  The field stone wall that once was the foundation of the original hay barn on the Scripps Farm, built circa 1870, is now the backdrop for many of the displays in our new Always Christmas store.

Olde World Canterbury Village welcomes a new and unique Department 56 Shop. The entire store is dedicated to Department 56 products. We have a huge village display over 20 feet long!  Included in the display are the popular main categories such as the Dickens Village Series, Christmas in the City Series, Original Snow Village Series, Alpine Village Series, North Pole Village Series, and New England Village Series.  The Halloween Village Series has its own spooktacular display along with several village vignettes of smaller collections. 

The Canterbury Store offers wall art, vases and unique accent pieces to enhance your décor. Our Tiffany style lamps will brighten any corner of your home.  The store showcases our Fontanini collection which features a life-sized display.  There is also a huge selection of the ever-popular Jim Shore Collectibles, Boyd's Bears, Precious Moments, Cherished Teddies, Possible Dreams, and Snowbabies, to name a few.

The Pavilion at Olde World Canterbury Village keeps the spirit of fun and fantasy alive all year long, offering rides for children on the beautiful reproduction 19th century German carousel.  This stunning carousel has created wonderful memories for an untold number of children and served as a backdrop for countless unique wedding pictures!

The C Pub is open daily for all your dining needs.  With great food at reasonable prices, your little ones will love our kid’s menu choices.  Whenever you’re visiting the Village; be sure to save time to include a visit for lunch, dinner or just a cold beverage.

King’s Court Castle Restaurant and Banquet Center was built with olde world craftsmanship, featuring rich, luxurious quality, ornate furnishings. Your visit will be enhanced by rich, oak paneling and carvings from France, European armor, tapestries and an antique stained glass window from Scotland. The magnificent chandelier in the lobby came from the Michigan theater, circa 1924.  It casts a beautiful glow on the antique fireplace in the Grand Hall of King's Court Castle, where it truly creates an olde world ambience. It was shipped from Liverpool, England where it had once been part of an 18th century manor house. 

With unique specialty shops, beautiful grounds and tasty treats for your enjoyment there is something for everyone.  Whether it’s a leisurely family visit, a fairy tale wedding in an elegant castle ballroom or a corporate banquet, the elegance, allure and charm produced by our dedicated staff are sure to create memories that will last a lifetime.


 Property History:

Scripps Farm

William Edmund Scripps, the son of the founder of the Detroit News and WWJ radio, started the farm as a "hobby". The farmland of 3,000 acres was purchased by Scripps in 1916 from several different landowners. The farm delt mainly with angus cattle, cows, swine, sheep, and poultry. During the Depression years (1929-1939), the farmhands and mansion servants all lived on the property as well as the family. A small one-room schoolhouse for children of the farm employees was established in 1925, and in 1952 it was converted into a church.

When William Scripps died in 1952, much of the farm was sold at auction. A large part of the collection of Scripps's European paintings from the estate were donated to the Detroit Institute of Arts in 1956.

The farmland and lakes are now mainly parks for Orion Township, Oakland County, and the state of Michigan. The original farmhouses and buildings are still part of Canterbury Village to this day.
