The Hobbiton™ Movie Set is a 2-hour experience to tantalize the senses of visitors from across the globe. This fully guided walking tour allows guests to  find themselves engulfed in the sights, smells, sounds and tastes of The Shire™, see 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 these tours becoming a must-see while travelers are in New Zealand. The Hobbiton™ Movie Set is the only set that remains intact from the trilogies. This allows visitors to fully immerse themselves in the wonders of The Shire. Visitors are given a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the 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.

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 presented with a complimentary, exclusive Hobbit™ Southfarthing™ beverage to conclude your own Middle-earth™ adventure.

This walking tour of the Hobbiton Movie Set will be 2 hours including transport to and from the movie set.
