You Can Visit Hobbiton And Have A Drink In The Green Dragon

Peter Jackson and his Hobbit crew have started cameras rolling again, filming scenes on the rather extraordinary outdoors Hobbiton set at Matamata.

Here’s an aerial picture of some of the set.

Looks great. The sort of place I’d love to get to look around. So do you know what? I think I will.

Announcing that the world premiere of the first Hobbit film will take place in Wellington next December, Jackson also revealed that the Hobbiton set is to become a permanent attraction. They’re going to leave the stone bridge in place, 44 separate Hobbit holes and a tavern, The Green Dragon.

I’m worried they’ll have to clutter the place up with “Watch Your Head!” signs, but it sounds like a great venture, and likely to be rather popular. Even if The Green Dragon just becomes the local hang out for some Matamata folk it should be profitable enough to keep nicely in the black and, I should wonder, provide solid employment for the most diminutive bar staff in the southern hemisphere.
