Hobbtion™ is the only intact set from the The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies, spread over 12 acres. Don’t miss any of the highlights with a guide who takes your through the stories and scenes on the set during a 2-hour walking tour, which grants you access to places tour vehicles can't reach. Plus, included transportation to and from the set makes visiting easy and convenient.

What to Expect

Meet your driver, who transports you to the Hobbiton™ movie set. On this 2-hour tour, a guide takes you and your small group through the only intact set from the The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. As you explore the enormous set, you'll admire the Hobbit Holes™ tucked into the hillsides, visit the Mill, and wander the green paths of The Shire.

Stop in at the Green Dragon™ Inn, where you can taste a complimentary Hobbit™ Southfarthing™ beverage.

At the end of your guided walking tour, your driver will transport you away from the movie set.

You don't say how you will be arriving at Hobbiton, but if you are driving or on a tour bus leave it in the vehicle you arrive in.
