Hobbiton is sooo beautiful! Even if you’re not a Lord Of The Rings fan the property is so gorgeous and the work they put into the tour is phenomenal. It’s definitely worth the price and the “green dragon” really does have great food and drink....More

What a great tour. Our young guide was enthusiastic and kept us all together without being 'bossy'. We loved the flowers and vegetables and the story of the artificial tree. The coloured doors were perfect in the setting and so were the details of the...More

To visit Hobbiton has been something of a dream of mine for a long time - ever since the Lord of the Rings movies first came to the big screen in the early 2000's. So when I realized that on a trip to Australia and...More

Smoke coming out of some of the chimney's, real vegetables in the vegetable garden, each hobbit residence has a business you can guess.
