Top Tips

Discover and explore the real Middle-earth at the original Hobbiton Movie Set Tour from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films. Set in the quaint regional North Island town of Matamata, it is easy to see why this picturesque, rolling, Waikato farmland was chosen to bring Tolkien’s Hobbiton to life. Visit the home of Bilbo Baggins and Frodo, take a wander around the Shire and even sit under the famous “Party Tree”.

There are plenty of amazing photo opportunities to be had and your friendly guide is full of insights into the making of the films in this spectacular location. After filming was completed for Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit”, Hobbiton was left behind, beautifully re-designed and constructed with thoughtful consideration to the smallest detail and is now available for the enjoyment of visitors and fans alike.

Venture Beyond The Door

The door has opened on a new adventure and we invite you to step inside and explore the humble home of a typical Hobbit™ family. All tours of Hobbiton Movie Set now include an interior Hobbit Hole™ experience, designed and crafted by the renowned creative teams behind The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film trilogies. Located on Bagshot Row™, these Hobbit Holes offer an authentic glimpse into the charming dwellings of Hobbits going about their daily lives in the Shire™.

Mind your head as you wander and weave through the maze of rooms and hallways, all constructed with a Hobbit’s stature in mind. Each delicate stroke of a paintbrush has left intricate hand-painted details and carvings into the walls, complimented with a plethora of colourful hand-stitched linens and decorative flourishes throughout.

Hints of the inhabitants’ family lineage is seeded throughout, with heirlooms and trinkets from generations of Hobbits from yesteryear, a well-stocked pantry with all the fixings to cater for their seven daily meals, and a cracking hearth all give a peek into the lives these halflings lead…
