Without further ado, first…
This is one Game of Thrones location I love in pictures after dark. The ‘King’s Road’ which is Dark Hedges in Northern Ireland, is one of the most visited stops in Northern Ireland. You may recognize this place as the place where Arya Stark fled ‘King’s Landing’, disguised as a boy.
The Dark Hedges is located in Bregagh Road in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. You could visit and take a walk down the iconic King’s Road yourself.
Dragonstone has been one of the main locations on Game of Thrones this season and this beach stands in for the shores of Dragonstone. Its caves are the ones Jon Snow ventures into in search of dragonglass.
Morocco (Essaouira, Ait Benhaddou, Ouarzazate)
Morocco is used to Daenerys travels in Season 3. Ait Benhaddou in Morocco served as slave-trading city of Yunkai for Game of Thrones, which Daenerys liberates in Season 3. Essaouira served as the Slaver’s Bay city of Astapor, and Ouarzazate served as Pentos, one of the free cities Daenerys visited.
Castle Ward, which is located along the GOT trail in Northern Ireland, is home to the Winterfell Castle, home to the Stark family. You may remember it from the scene when Bran falls from the window.
Plaza de Toros, Osuna
This location serves as the Fighting Pit of Meereen in Season 5, where Khaleesi oversees a fight at Daznak’s pit. It’s also located in Spain.
This Game of Thrones location is one you can actually visit, located in Dubrovnik-Neretva County, Croatia. It is known as the ‘Kings Landing’ in Game of Thrones.
The Cushendun Caves was seen in Season 2 of Game of Thrones as ‘the Stormlands’. It is the Game of Thrones location where Lady Melisandre gave birth to the shadow baby.
These locations are exceptional. Get loads of fun travelling and exploring with fellow GOT fans. Even those that aren’t fans are sure to enjoy these striking locations; because when it cones to filming locations, Game of Thrones has stolen our hearts.
Till next time…
