Tour Details

Become a part of the legend of Middle-earth! Costume up as your favourite character and tour Hobbiton in style.

Now you can enjoy our most popular tour of the Hobbiton movie set, while fully costumed as a character from the Lord of the Rings or the Hobbit series.  Choose a warrior, dwarf, Elven princess, hobbit- whatever you imagine, our expert costumers at First Scene can create. 

The Hobbiton Movie Set is built on a picturesque private farmland near Matamata in the North Island of New Zealand.  During the filming of The Hobbit trilogy, the set was completely rebuilt and can be seen as it appeared in the films.  You can get the full Hobbiton experience in a fascinating guided tour.

The Green Dragon Inn is also now open and is a special feature of our tours. At the end of the tour, we'll visit the inn to relax, and enjoy a complimentary Hobbiton ale or other beverage.

Special Notes

The cosplay option is only available Monday to Friday. For weekend trips to Hobbiton, see our regular tours.
