I once saw a place named Galadriel's Jewlery Store. Too bad I didn't get a picture.

There's a sports/camping type store near me called Rohan.
And no one's mentioned Gandalf Airlines! Not exactly a place, but still.
This doesn't really count, but before Orlando Bloom did LOTR, he was in a show called Midsomer Murders, and there was a garden in his episode called Lothlorien....spooky huh?

My family was driving along the Oregon Coast when we passed a sign which my dad swears said Hobbit Trail (though I can't back that up myself). I never got a chance to get a good look at it, but I think it was a hiking path.

In Maryland there is a golf shop called Baggins Golf and Game.

It's amusing to see people re-using Tolkien's names just as he did with older ones. As a result of his references there are some places in England that have received Tolkienian associations.

In the Royal County of Berkshire, about twenty miles from where I live, there's a town called Newbury. This is either a coincidence brought about by Tolkien's use of English naming systems or a deliberate re-use by him of the real place.

And I saw a 'Hobbit Guest House' in South Africa...

There is a Greenleaf, Wisconsin. I once looked through the whole index of strret names in my area and found streets named Greenwood, Greenleaf, Merry, and Ent. As soon as I learn to drive I plan to go and take pictures of their signs. There is also a Bag End Sound Productions, LothLorien Housing Co-op, and a company that repairs fax equipment called Shadowfax around here.

My grandma has been to a restaurant called Bilbo's in Alexandria, Virginia. I wonder if the picture Brinniel posted is of it?

Well, not much 'round here, but there is a street called Greenwood about a block away from where I live. Travel it all the time. It's a pretty street.

You know, it never occured to me that there would be that much Tolkien stuff in regular every day life, but it might be that it came from when the book first came out, 20 years ago maybe? The book was probably just as big of a hit back then as it was and still is now. Some of these names might have been made shortly after they came out, buying licences to the names and whatnot. Just a thought.

Up in Whitby, North Yorkshire, there's The Middle Earth Tavern. I think the name, though, is post-Tolkien (although it's been called that for at least 15 years). It's quite old, and on the harbourside (Church Street) so you can watch the boats in the marina while you sup your ale. Most importantly, it does a cracking pint of Theakston's Old Peculier, and there's plenty of fish and chip shops nearby. Mmmmmmmmm.

Also in North Yorkshire, there's The Green Dragon Inn. This is a really old country pub, and at the back, there is Hardraw Force, the highest single drop waterfall in England, which has a very 'magical' atmosphere.

With the house named Lothlorian (sic) in the Midsomer Murders, I wondered whether it was it was a little joke/ tribute since it has no significance to the plot. Bloom got offered LOTR the day before he was offered the part in MM and filmed it first.....

Rohan is in France..... most English county names end in shire.... and Tolkien did reuse typical elements ... There is a Micheldever between Winchester and Basingstoke for instance
