The Real Middle-earth Tour

The Anglo-Saxon origins of The Lord of the Rings story are explored in this guided tour.

Find out about the links between Tolkien and the Anglo-Saxon world on a guided tour from a member of the Tolkien Society and a Middle-earth enthusiast.

The Anglo-Saxon Village was also a set used in ‘Born of Hope’ a fan film which prequels The Lord of the Rings. The tour, which lasts a little over an hour, concludes with a ‘riddle battle’ like that in The Hobbit.
