What To Do (and Eat) In Wellington

If you are a die-hard Hobbit fan and happen to be travelling to Wellington, New Zealand, here are a few things to make your trip worthwhile:

First, hit up the Weta Cave.

This "mini-museum" features props and displayes from your favorite WETA films, and has WETA merchandise available for purchase.

If you want to take a tour of some of the sites where Lord of the Rings was filmed, try Wellington Movie Tours. They have several different tours (full day or half day) that include lunch, and depending on which you choose, you can see up to 25 LOTR sites near Wellington, including a "Bush walk to Rivendell."

But don't limit yourself just to LOTR activities, check out the sites and the nightlife. Here are a few of Guillermo's favorite places to go:


The White House Restaurant

Capitol Restaurant

Logan Brown ("FANTASTIC", says G)


Arty Bees Books

Wellinton is a splendid place. I hope to visit again sometime.

The Tattoo museum is quite an interesting and curious place to visit there too.
