Getting to walk around the Shire was one the highlights of our trip to the North Island and one thing ticked off our bucket list. The perfect end to the awesome experience was the chance to taste some of the home brewed cold ale or a ginger beer at The Green Dragon Inn and relax in front of the fireplace.
