Experience the magic of Middle-earth on a guided small-group tour at dusk, featuring a brilliant evening banquet feast!
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. Your tour concludes at the Green Dragon Inn with a complimentary, exclusive Hobbit Southfarthing beverage.
You will then enter the Green Dragon dining room and treated to a banquet dinner. The tables will be heaving with traditional Hobbit food and, as is the tradition in the Shire, second helpings are encouraged. After dinner, rejoin your guide to make your way back through the meandering paths of the Shire. The trails will be illuminated by path lighting and handheld lanterns are provided. This stunning journey under moonlight will allow you to see the village breathtakingly lit up, with Hobbit Hole chimneys smoking and lanterns glowing in the darkness.
