The hobbiton movie set is a significant location used for The Lord of the Rings film trilogy and the Hobbit film trilogy. It is situated 10 kilometers southwest of Matamata, in Waikato, New Zealand and now is a Tolkien tourism destination, offering a guided tour of the set. On site also got ample of parking places, cafe, gifts shop. Highlights of the tour include Bagshot Row, the Party Tree, and Bilbo's Bag End home. There are 44 Hobbit holes on view, but only few of them can enter.

If you are visiting the North Island of New Zealand then definitely precook tickets to Hobbit Village! Prebook because I saw a lot of people turned away. I enjoyed the Lord of the Rings books and movies but you don’t need to be a fan to enjoy this site. I knew I was visiting a movie set but I didn’t realize it was still a working sheep ranch! The tours were well timed and I didn’t feel rushed. It was a place I’d visit again. The hobbit houses all really open up and you’re able to step inside some of them. #happynewyear
