This promises to be quite… precious.
Yes, you got it right. There’s a cave in Wellington that leads into a world of Lord Of The Rings. You’ll see many rare collectables from the popular franchise, as well as other movies, at the Weta Workshop Cave. And, it’s just a 20-minute drive from the centre of Wellington.

Weta Workshop is a 58,000 square foot creative facility, home to pivotal creative design for over three decades.
If you take the Weta Worskshop tour, you’ll have an experience to remember. From learning about costume design, effects and miniatures, to creating your own movie effects with the help of fake blood, there’s plenty to keep all ages entertained in the world of Weta.
The full tour gains you access to some jaw-dropping props from Lord Of The Rings, Ghost In Shell and many other movies. You’ll even get to visit a shooting stage, equipped with some Thunderbirds Tracy Island style design!
There’s also access to some top drawer sculpting classes, an introduction to Leather and Chainmaille, and many other packages.
Any of this sound like a wonderful day out to you, as it should? Check out the Weta Workshop website here.
