COVID-19: 

As a result of the latest restrictions and alert levels announced by the New Zealand Government, we have made the decision to temporarily close Hobbiton Movie Set in an effort to ensure the health and safety of all staff, visitors and the wider community. 

We will be cancelling tours and reviewing this on a weekly basis. If you have a tour booked in between now and 31 May 2020, our team will be in touch to discuss your options. 

This decision has not been taken lightly but we need to play our part in the fight against COVID-19. 

We appreciate your patience over this difficult time.
