  • Enjoy a banquet fit for a Hobbit
  • Fully guided tour of the Shire
  • The ultimate Lord of the Rings experience

Experience life as a Hobbit like never before! Join a guided tour through the Shire visiting key filming locations before sitting down to a banquet feast at The Green Dragon Inn. Eat like a king (Hobbit) before a gentle lantern-lit walk through the Shire with Hobbiton lit up.

What's Included?

  • Tour of the Hobbiton Movie Set
  • Friendly guide
  • Banquet dinner
  • One complimentary beverage from the Hobbit Southfarthing range
  • Photo opportunities

Experience the Hobbiton Movie Set at dusk with a guided tour across the twelve acres of the Shire. As you tour Hobbit Holes, The Green Dragon Inn, The Mill, the double arched bridge and other structures and gardens built for the films, your guide will recount with you fascinating details of how the movie set was created.

The last stop on the tour is The Green Dragon Inn where you have ample time to relax in front of the open fires enjoying a complimentary beverage from the exclusive Hobbit Southfarthing range. Then, move through to the Green Dragon dining room and be treated to banquet feast fit for a Hobbit. As is the tradition in the Shire, second helpings are more definitely encouraged.

After dinner, take your authentic handheld lantern to light the way back along the pathways of the Shire. This stunning journey under moonlight will take you through the village as it is breathtakingly lit up with Hobbit hole chimney's smoking and lanterns glowing against the darkness.

This experience is part of the Responsible Range as it was awarded a Qualmark Enviro-Gold endorsement and was a 100% Pure NZ award nominee.
