Hobbiton was a village in the Westfarthing of the Shire.


Hobbiton was located in the center of the Shire in the far eastern part of the Westfarthing. It was the home of many illustrious Hobbits, including Bilbo Baggins, Frodo Baggins, and Samwise Gamgee. Notable locations in Hobbiton include the Mill and the Baggins' Hobbit-hole in the hill, and Bag End. At the end of the War of the Ring, Saruman's treachery destroyed much of the Shire, and Hobbiton suffered greatly. The Old Mill had been replaced with a noxious factory-like structure, and many trees had been cut down.[1][2]

After the servants of Saruman had been expelled from the Shire, Sam Gamgee used magic soil from the garden of the Elf-queen Galadriel to heal the Shire in general, but with particular attention to Hobbiton.

Behind the ScenesEdit



In Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings film trilogy, Hobbiton was filmed on a farm in Matamata, New Zealand and in a studio.

The Hobbiton set can be visited in New Zealand. Visit iconic locations such as the Hobbit Holes, The Green Dragon Inn and The Mill. Learn about how the farm land was converted into the film sets.
