The Hobbiton Movie Set Half Day Tour
This fantastic half day tour of the movie set shows how it was for The Hobbit and and The Lord of the Rings film trilogy.

During your tour you will see Hobbit Holes, The Green Dragon Inn, The Mill, double arched bridge and other structures and gardens built for the films.
The Green Dragon Inn

The inn also offers traditional fare, including a famous beef and ale pie.

You will have plenty of time to visit The Shire Store and browse the many items for sale. These include hand-crafted items from Weta Studios, the exclusive Southfarthing beverages, woollen products, cloaks from Stansborough Fibres, books and memorabilia from Hobbiton Movie Set.
Then it’s back to Tauranga and via Mossops honey shop if there’s time.
