Truly gorgeous! It makes me believe that it is an actual town, when it looks more like a huge movie set because of the home sizes... It is like I am being brought into a new world with your images, and I can't resist saying, "perhaps I can own a home there, but I'll be too tall to have one!" Lovely shots, mate!

Whoa, those trails seem to fit just like one or two persons at the same time, and those are well maintained too! I wish such trails exist here in the US as well, and I truly like the greenery as if the real hobbits existed... Spectacular shots yet again!

Thanks the place surely transports you to another world, it is great to leave reality behind for a couple of hours

Man, Hobbiton sure is a very interesting place. On your latest collection, I love the first photo the best: it has the replica of my symbol, the dragon, and it makes me wonder if the hobbits also believe in mythical creatures as many other fictional characters... I mean, that metal sculpture is beautifully crafted indeed. Perhaps one day, I'll take a walk around Hobbiton and see what those look like in real life. If you spot any actual hobbits, my friend, take pics of them too!

Looks gorgeous, but you seem to be the only visitor there?...

Being at Hobbiton is better than the movie You haven't looked through all the pics then, we are shown around in groups that have to stick together, you can't wander off on your own for obvious reasons so once the people have moved on I take the photograph. There were bus loads leaving every 15 minutes - thousands of visitors per day.

I intend on going again when there are less crowds, guess I will have to wait for that to happen Thanks for the comment

P.S. I must apologise for the quality of the pics, only after I got home did I realise that my ISO setting was wrong

Hobbiton surely is a hobbit town, I thought it was computer generated.

Thanks for sharing.
