Tour the Hobbiton Movie Set in Matamata, New Zealand
Just outside the small town of Matamata, you can visit the actual Hobbiton set featured in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film trilogies. Get a sneak peek of this Tolkien fanatic’s paradise.
The Green Dragon Inn
While interior scenes at The Green Dragon were shot in studios in Wellington, those interiors have been painstakingly recreated at the Hobbiton Movie Set. Up to 60 builders and landscapers worked on the project under the direction of set designer Brian Massey.
