International Hobbit™ Day

CONSTRUCTION ON THE SET: A major and very exciting development project will be underway on the movie set
from April - December 2023. Learn more here. 

Our biggest party of the year is back again for 2023, celebrating the birthdays of Bilbo and Frodo here at Hobbiton Movie Set, home of the Hobbits. 

Step into the enchanting village on a guided tour of the Shire™, where your guide will escort you through the twelve-acre set recounting fascinating details of how this location was transformed and the movie magic was made here.

As the tour comes to an end, you’ll arrive into The Green Dragon™ Marketplace – a bustling, vibrant festival-like atmosphere with traditional Hobbit fare bursting from the market stalls. Sample some treats from the stalls and make yourself at home in the cosy interiors of The Green Dragon Inn.

Our famous Hobbit™ Southfarthing™ beverages will be flowing fresh from the kegs, alongside range of wines, with roving performers, interactive games and live music to keep you entertained. 

For guests with a Hobbit-sized appetite, the Party Marquee will boast a buffet table overflowing with options for a more substantial supper, and, as is tradition in the Shire™, second helpings are encouraged! 

To conclude the evening, you’ll be invited on a stunning journey under moonlight back through the village, with lights from the Hobbit Holes™ glowing against the darkness.

This will be a night to remember…

Please be aware a major construction project will be underway on the Movie Set on this date as we build the interior of a Hobbit Hole on Bagshot Row. This project will have some effect on tours through the movie set from March-November 2023. Tours will continue throughout this period but will take an alternate route around the construction zone and the three Hobbit Holes on Bagshot Row will not be visible. We ask that you keep this in mind when making your booking with us.  You can learn more here.
