    A must go for LOTR fans! The setting is beautiful - bagshot row and all the brightly colored hobbit holes; the lake, party tree, water mill and lush gardens all over. The ales provided at the Green Dragon is a great way to end the tour.

    besides being able to actually see and be in the movie set, it's a very informative tour as the guide is able to provide some interesting information on the movie set. a beautiful place and i guess it's a must visit place for fans of the lord of the ring.

    Forget watching The Hobbit - this is the place to go to be IN the Hobbit! With the full Hobbiton set faithfully preserved you can walk amongst the gardens, Hobbit holes and see where the journey all began!

    The drive here is fairly long - 2 hours or so from Auckland by auto. You pay 75 NZD for entrance and that gets you a 1.5 hour tour plus a complimentary drink at the pub at the end. It's a pretty cool little place to come, and amazing to note that this is where the movie came out of. Don't miss this if you are a LOTR fan.

    Hobbiton has the set from her Lord of the Rings movies, but you also have a chance to feed baby lambs. The cafe is decent and the only food close by. They were working on a restaurant in the Green Dragon while we were there in November 2012.
