South Waikato News - - Your Health -

It can be tempt­ing to hang around snap­ping as many pho­tos as you can of the 44 hob­bit holes, but try to stay up the front and pay at­ten­tion to your guide. They re­veal some in­cred­i­ble de­tails about the film­mak­ing process, which adds to the magic of the ex­pe­ri­ence. Did you know, for in­stance, it was some­one’s job to catch all of the frogs in the pond each morn­ing, be­cause they were croak­ing so loud the ac­tors couldn’t hear each other?

Adults can tour the Hob­biton Movie Set for $79, chil­dren aged 9 to 16 for $39.50, and chil­dren 8 and un­der can visit for free, ac­com­pa­nied by an adult. Each tour in­cludes a drink at The Green Dragon Inn.

There are also evening ban­quet tours, pri­vate tours, and you can even hire out Hob­biton for events and func­tions. How about a Mid­dleearth wed­ding?
