Photos of Hobbiton

Hobbiton Movie Set, the location of the conference banquet, is an experience to tantalise your senses, as you find yourself engulfed in the sights, smells, sounds and tastes of The Shire, at the home of the Hobbits, as featured in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Trilogies.

The extraordinary following that the movies have amassed has led to the tours becoming a must see while travellers are in New Zealand. The Hobbiton Movie Set is the only set that remains intact from the trilogies, and that allows visitors to fully immerse themselves in the wonders of The Shire. You will be given the once in a lifetime opportunity to see an iconic movie set in its full glory; from wandering the rambling paths of The Shire, to seeing the submerged Hobbit Holes that litter the rolling hillsides.

Your guide will then escort you around the set, showing you the intricate detailing, pointing out the most famous locations and explaining how the movie magic was made. You will be taken around the 12 acre set; past Hobbit Holes, the Mill and into the world-famous Green Dragon™ Inn, where you will be provided with one of our exclusive Southfarthing beverages, before being whisked away to enjoy a banquet feast fit for a Hobbit.

PLEASE NOTE: Hobbiton have two golf carts available for the duration of the tour if you find it difficult to stand or walk for long periods of time. Each golf cart has three seats. To book a seat on one of these golf carts, please email ASAP.
