Lord of the Rings

JRR Tolkein’s epic trilogy was given life by Peter Jackson and the great sets created in New Zealand. When visiting New Zealand you can tour The Shire, have a beer at the Green Dragon and even walk into Mordor (despite what Boromir says.) Peter Jackson filmed the majority of the LOTR trilogy and the Hobbit films around New Zealand.
