A Hobbit Christmas

Celebrate the festive season at this one of a kind event: On Friday 14th December Hobbiton™ Movie Set will be putting on a special 4 hour Christmas celebration.

Hobbiton is an experience to tantalise the senses, as guests find themselves engulfed in the sights, smells, sounds and tastes of the Shire, at the home of the Hobbits, as featured in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Trilogies.

Your guide escorts you through the twelve-acre site recounting fascinating details of how the movie set was created. Throughout the movie set you will see 44 complete Hobbit Holes, the thatched Millhouse, double arch stone bridge and of course the famous Green Dragon Inn.

At the conclusion of your tour arrive into the Green Dragon Inn and receive a beverage from our exclusive Southfarthing™ range of beers, cider or gingerbeer or Middle-earth wine range. The Green Dragon Inn was the meeting place for all residents of Hobbiton, who would gather in the warm surroundings of the bar to chatter about the day’s events. Relax inside by the two indoor fireplaces or enjoy the warmer summer evenings and explore the Bywater beer overlooking the movie set.

Hearty Hobbit sized canapes will be served while you explore the masterfully re-created Inn and listen to the famous Marian Burns on her fiddle. After approximately 45 minutes you will be escorted up to the Party Marquee for a Christmas buffet dinner which will be full of traditional Hobbit fare and as is the tradition in the Shire, second helpings are encouraged. The Party Marquee is a fully themed, spacious location where the painted canvas exterior, vibrant bunting and colourful lanterns allow you to be immersed in the festive magic of the movies.

To conclude this premium Hobbiton Movie Set experience, after dinner you will re-­join your guide and make your way back through the wandering paths of Hobbiton. The trails will be illuminated by path lighting and you will receive an authentic handheld lantern to light the way.

This stunning journey under moonlight will travel through the village breathtakingly lit up with Hobbit Hole chimney’s smoking and lanterns glowing against the darkness.

Tickets are limited so get in quick to celebrate Christmas with the Hobbits!
