In Matamata, New Zealand.
Sorry, but they shot all the inside scenes in Stone Street Studio in Wellington. Anyway, even you can't really go into the smials, it's still worth a visit if you are a fan of the movies. :)

But you can go inside the Green Dragon Inn, that is real and you can even buy a drink. ;)

So, if/when you peek in the window, does it really look like in the movie?

Actually the indoor scenes were shot in the studio in Wellington, so there's not much inside.

Ooooooh! So Bagend is just a facade. I had an image of the space being built, and a grass covered hill raised over it. Just goes to show that you CAN know too much. :iconsadplz:

Pat pat Don't feel sad about that. After all the movie set is still a dream place for fans to visit. At least  the set is permanent now thanks to the new movies.

Yes, the film makers decided to make it permanent before shooting The Hobbit. So you'll almost see the same set as it is now. :)

The main reason I went there wasn't travelling so I only visited the North Island. I think the area around Rororua and Taupo are worthy of a trip. And as a fan of LOTR and Hobbit, you can't miss Weta Cave in Miramar, Wellington. I believe the South Island has many more attractions, you may take a look at this site: www.newzealand.com/int/ :)
