Visiting the real life Shire in Matamata is a must when you’re in Cambridge. Here, nestled within sprawling private farmland, is where you’ll find the Hobbiton Movie Set, which featured in the original The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and was then rebuilt for The Hobbit films.

The Hobbiton experience begins with a drive through a 1,250 acre sheep farm with views across to the Kaimai Ranges. You’ll see Bag End, where Frodo and Bilbo resided. Explore the hobbit holes, see the Party Tree, the mill, bridges, gardens and many other structures that were painstakingly constructed and then recreated for Peter Jackson’s movies. It’s not hard to imagine fantastic creatures frolicking through Middle earth in this slice of paradise.

Your Hobbiton experiences then continues on. At the Green Dragon Inn - favoured watering hole of the hobbits - you are entitled to a complimentary beverage from the exclusive Southfarthing range. Feeling peckish? Traditional pub fare is available to order off the menu. Afterwards, stop in at the Shire Store. The atmosphere is lively and there’s an array of products you can buy and take away. Among these are hand crafted items from Weta Studios, as well as books, cloaks and other themed memorabilia.

Hobbiton Movie Set tours last for about 3 hours and depart throughout the day from the town of Matamata, which is just half an hour from Cambridge in your rental car.

And if you find that Hobbiton has completely captured your heart, you can book a rustic farm stay in Matamata and extend your time here.


Great value - thanks! Definitely will recommend you to my friends.

Excellent value, We got what you promised. No hidden costs like the rip off we had in Cairns!
