Due to the latest restrictions announced by the New Zealand government, Hobbiton Movie Set is temporarily closed until the end of May 2020.
Experience Hobbiton Movie Set at dusk with a guided tour of the Shire. Your guide escorts you through the twelve acre site recounting fascinating details of how the movie set was created. The tour concludes at The Green Dragon Inn with ample time to relax in front of the open fires enjoying a complimentary beverage from the exclusive Hobbit Southfarthing range.
The guests will then be moved through into the Green Dragon dining room and treated to a banquet feast fit for a Hobbit. The tables will be full of traditional Hobbit fare and as is the tradition in The Shire, second helpings are encouraged.
To conclude this premium Hobbiton Movie Set experience, after dinner the guests will re-join their guide to make their way back through the wandering paths of the Shire. The trails will be illuminated by pathlighting and each guest will receive an authentic handheld lantern to light the way. This stunning journey under moonlight will travel through the village breathtakingly lit up with Hobbit hole chimney’s smoking and lanterns glowing against the darkness.
