Hobbiton Banquet Tour

Experience Hobbiton Movie Set as you have never seen it before with a guided tour through The Shire at dusk. Making the most of the remaining daylight, your tour guide will escort you through the 12 acre site, recounting fascinating stories and anecdotes about the trilogies. The tour concludes at The Green Drago Inn with a complimentary beverage of the exclusive Hobbit Southfarthing range. You will then be moved through into The Green Dragon dining room and treated to a banquet feast fit for a Hobbit. The tables will be heaving with traditional Hobbit fare and, as is the tradition in the Shire, second helpings are encouraged.

To conclude this premium Hobbiton Movie Set experience, after dinner the guests will re-join their guide to make their way back through the wandering paths of The Shire. The trails will be illuminated by path lighting and handheld lanterns will be provided amongst the guests to help light the way. This stunning journey under moonlight will travel through the village breathtakingly lit up, with Hobbit Hole chimneys smoking and lanterns glowing in the darkness.
