Has anyone have been in Hobbiton in New Zealand? The Hobbiton movie set is one of the locations where the movie The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings series took place. It is located in Matamata, in Waikato region, 2 hour drive from Auckland. I've been at the place but not inside, we were only outside and checking out the location since we're in a hurry on our way to Auckland. I would love to visit this place since I love the movie The Hobbit and I believe this place is as magical as in the film
Yes! And it's amazing!! As a local someone who lives in New Zealand, I thought at first it will be too touristy or cliche for me but I ended up having a lot of fun. The amount of detail put into the design and set up of the place is astonishing. It's just interesting and a little nostalgic. There's just a tinge of nerdy guilt to enjoy it so much.
