Hobbiton Movie Set

03 September 18

Discover the Real Middle Earth

 

The idyllic village of Hobbiton is Middle-earth at its best. Located within the rolling green farmland of near Matamata in the North Island of New Zealand. Hobbiton Movie Set includes all 44 personalised hobbit holes that make up the shire. Rebuilt to exactly as they did in the movies - right down to smoking chimneys and blue bell flowers - you'll feel as if you have stumbled right into a fantasy world. 

The fascinating 90 minute guided tour that is included on selected Grand Pacific Tours holidays takes you through the set. Take a look at Bag End, where Frodo and Bilbo’s adventures began. Get lost among the hobbit holes and visit the mill and the Party Tree. Listen to spell-binding tales of how Hobbiton came to be. You will see how this beautiful and picturesque piece of Waikato farmland was transformed into The Shire from Middle-earth and learn how fantasy is bought to life in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings and Hobbiton films.


Finish up at The Green Dragon Inn, masterfully recreated, relax at the Inn of the Hobbits as part of your tour where you can relax and enjoy a complimentary refreshment of their exclusively crafted Southfaring range.

Enjoy Hobbiton Movie Set as an highlight on a selection of New Zealand Coach Holidays . . .
