As the Movie Set was not originally constructed to become a tourism attraction, there are some limitations we face with accessibility on the Movie Set.
We offer a 2 and a half hour guided walking tour, with the actual walking distance around 2km. You will be on your feet for just under two hours in total. If you are able to walk this distance including the steep incline detailed above without assistance at a leisurely pace and can stand unaided when boarding and disembarking our bus, you should be able to complete our standard walking tour experience.
If you have a walking frame, you are welcome to bring this on tour with you as long as it is collapsible and can be stored in the undercarriage of our bus when transporting to and from the Movie Set. Please note if you choose to bring a walking frame with you on tour, you will need to carry it with you for the duration of the tour including through our interior Hobbit Hole. Please see details of what to expect from the paths and terrain of the Movie Set above.
For visitors not able to complete the walking tour, we do offer a Mobility Restriction Golf Cart option. This includes the use of a Golf Cart where you take an altered route around the Movie Set with the assistance of an additional Hobbiton Movie Set staff member who will drive the golf cart. Please note, our Mobility Restriction Golf Carts can seat two passengers only, with a combined maximum weight of 200kgs. Our Golf Carts are available on a needs and availability basis. In order to use one of our Golf Carts, guests must be able to transfer independently onto the Golf Cart and sit un-supported.
We are only able to offer one Mobility Restriction Golf Cart within an hour period due to the alternate path that the Golf Cart needs to take.
If we have multiple requests for a Mobility Restriction Golf Cart for the same tour departure time, guests may be asked to share this service with another party, please note that our Golf Carts can only seat a maximum of two customers with a combined maximum weight of 200kgs and we can only book one Golf Cart within an hour period due to the alternate path that the Golf Cart needs to take.
Golf Carts must be pre-arranged at least 48 hours in advance and are subject to availability due to the additional staffing requirements. If you request a Golf Cart within 48 hours of your preferred travel date we cannot guarantee one will be available for your tour. Weight restrictions also apply as stated above. Please only request a Mobility Restriction Golf Cart if you require it and include as much detail in your request as possible.
Please note if you miss your confirmed tour departure time we may be unable to reschedule your tour with the golf cart addition due to other bookings.
To request a Golf Cart please get in touch.
