It may be a long way to go to start a new life, but those who make the 11,500 mile journey are said to be Britain's happiest expats.
New Zealand is frequently recognised as a country which has one of the highest qualities of life in the world, featuring prominently in most worldwide quality of living surveys. The country offers a safe and green environment with healthy lifestyle options as well as being a modern and exciting place to live.
It's also become synonymous with the blockbuster film franchises inspired by JRR Tolkien's epic fantasies "The Lord of the Rings" and, most recently "The Hobbit", with Kiwi director Peter Jackson utilising the stunning and unique scenery of his homeland to bring Middle Earth to life. From the pastoral serenity of Hobbiton, through the snow-capped mountains of Moria, to the harsh volcanic landscape of Mordor - New Zealand has it all, and what it lacks in actual elves and trolls it more than makes up for with a special magic of it's own.
With second in film in "The Hobbit" trilogy "The Desolation of Smaug" currently in cinemas, if you find yourself marvelling at the beautiful backdrops then perhaps we can tempt you with a fantastic new role on your very own movie set?
