Multiple Locations, Northern Ireland
Game of Thrones
From the very beginning, Game of Thrones has called Northern Ireland home. Of the show’s dozens of filming locations up here, the biggest chip on the table would have to be Winterfell, the much-contended home of the Stark family. The farmyard of County Down’s Castle Ward hosts the direwolves within its walls, and today, you can visit the castle and experience the world of Westeros for yourself with archery lessons where they filmed the show.
Of course, there’s more to see in County Antrim, including where 200-year-old rows of beech trees form a cave-like canopy over Bregagh Road. The Dark Hedges, given their ominous nickname by locals, are recognizably The King’s Road -- scene of Arya’s escape from King’s Landing in Season 2.
