As Wara took us on our private tour of Hobbiton, we were amazed at how Peter Jackson had actually constructed The Shire to film the movies.

The original movie set was only built to last about one year and due to some bad rain storms the remaining hobbit holes were unable to be removed. Here 18 of the original 37 hobbit holes still stand.

Today however, all of the Shire has been reconstructed for the filming of “The Hobbit”
