Experience the real Middle-earth™ with a uLearn17 group tour of the Hobbiton Movie Set, the bucolic setting for The Shire™ that featured in the Peter Jackson directed films, The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Trilogies.
Your guide will take you through the twelve acre site recounting fascinating details of how the Hobbiton Movie set was created. The Hobbit Holes, Green Dragon™ Inn, Mill and other structures created for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films can be viewed and you will see how this beautiful piece of Waikato farmland was transformed into The Shire from Middle-earth.
A payable fee will be added to your invoice if you tick the Hobbiton tour as an additional activity when you register for uLearn17 (not available for those attending uLearn Changing Spaces only).
