Hobbiton: Today was the Day

image

Sunny blue skies and warm weather set the stage for our visit to the Hobbiton Movie Set. We were amazed at how many people were on the grounds at the same time. It looked like they ran a new bus load of people every 15 or 30 minutes. I think there were easy close to 200 people on the grounds at any one time.

Tickets!

While it was amazing to see all the scale replicas of the hobbit holes, I think the main star was the beautiful plantings and gardens. They really set the stage to allow you to feel like you were among Hobbits who happened to step out.

The best part was of course getting to see Bilbo’s house. Photos are, you guessed it, on the other camera. But we did take a few with my phone.
