GAME Of Thrones, the blockbuster, record-breaking television series features some utterly breathtaking landscapes. From bone-dry deserts to the freezing cold beyond the Wall.
We are giving you details where the gripping drama is filmed, in case you’ve ever thought of planning some Game Of Thrones-themed sightseeing…
Where is Game of Thrones filmed?
Game of Thrones series is mostly shot in a studio in Belfast, but there are also on-location shoots in Northern Ireland, Croatia, Morocco and Iceland.
Here are some of the main locations…
The spectacular King’s Landing is home to the iron throne and the ruler of the seven kingdoms, so naturally the locations used had to be visually stunning.
The grey towers of Winterfell are pretty bleak and imposing in the show – whether they’re run by Ramsay Bolton or Jon and Sansa.
In reality they’re located in County Down, Northern Ireland, where it can be a lot greener and sunnier than it seems on the show.
Dorne is also filmed at a UNESCO world heritage site. The Alcazar of Seville stands in for Dorne’s capital city, Sunspear, and its Water Gardens.
The Castle of Zafra in central Spain is also used as the Tower of Joy in Dorne. Sometimes a location in Northern Ireland, Portstewart Strand, will stand in for one of the Dornish beaches.
Stannis Baratheon burns his old gods at one of the longest beaches in Northern Ireland, Downhill Strand, which is 7 miles long.
