“I’m going on an adventure!” – Bilbo, in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
One of the nice things about the tour was how much that was used in filming remained. Including this lovely fence that Bilbo leaed over, waiving his signed contract, to join the Dwarves. One thing we immediately noticed was how high the fence was, and how in the heck did Martin Freeman, a man of hobbit size, spring so easily across? (We suspect springboards).
Here is the scene from the movie:
A whirlwind tour filled with much hobbitness. There are of course, tons of pictures of the site, including more hobbit holes, The Party Tree, etc. If you’re keen to see more, let me know!
