The Hobbiton Movie Set is just 20 minutes drive from ArtHouse B&B and is the main reason many visitors stay in Matamata. Bruce & I first visited in July 2016 and were absolutely enchanted with the experience and still enjoy going there. Tours are around 2 hours and depart every 10-15 minutes from Shires Rest commencing at 9.00am. Or you can take the bus from the Matamata I-Site (allow 3 hours). Or you may be interested in particpating in the Evening Banquet Tour which includes the tour and concludes with a banquet feast fit for a Hobbit! The Banquet Tour operates several times a week with additional departures over the summer months - bookings are essential for all the tours but particularly for the Evening Banquets .Book via this site - www.hobbitontours.com
