Group Tours

Canterbury Shaker Village offers group tours that may be tailored to meet the specific needs and interests of all and any age. Our standard group tour, Shaker Stories: History and Legacy, introduces visitors to the Shakers and provides a broad overview of their history and culture. 

On this tour, visitors explore how the Shakers journeyed from a misunderstood and persecuted people to becoming one of the most intriguing and successful religious communities in our nation’s history. Learn how their vision of “Heaven on Earth” reflects communal life, religious practices, gender equality, pacifism, simplicity, and innovative contributions to American history and culture. Get inside access to the Meeting House (1792), Dwelling House (1793), Laundry (1816), and Schoolhouse (1823).

Available May through October, group tours are $20 per person with lunch available for an additional $20. Our group tours are led by well-informed and inspired guides. Off-season (weather-dependent) group tours are available with advanced notice.
