With Game of Thrones Season Seven well underway and powering towards a nail-biting conclusion, you may want to explore the show even more. What better way than to visit some of the most popular filming locations used in the series. Explore Westeros from the Iron Islands to the Stormlands in Northern Ireland, go north of The Wall in Iceland or discover the mystical land of Dorne in southern Spain.
Iceland: Dare to Go North Of The Wall
Also known as the Land of Fire and Ice, Iceland is a firmly favoured filming destination for Game of Thrones and is witnessed most in the second and third season but with the winds of winter approaching, the crew have returned to film north of The Wall once more. Our new Incredible Iceland breaks mean it is now easy to reach the Arctic North of Iceland and you can even add on a Game of Thrones tour to your Northern Iceland Holiday. Otherwise, the Land of Ice and Fire tour included in an Incredible Iceland break will take you to some familiar locations such as Lake Mývatn and the lava fields of Dimmuborgir.
Northern Ireland: Experience Westeros
Suitable for both super fans and GoT novices wanting in on the flurry of excitement, these intriguing coach tours meander the stunning filming locations and give you the chance to play the game of thrones yourself. Tour highlights include Ballintoy Harbour where Theon Greyjoy returned to Pyke, Carrick-a-Rede Ropebridge where Balon Greyjoy met his end (what is dead may never die) and The Dark Hedges which doubled as The King’s Road and is rumoured to return in Season 7.
Seville: Step Inside the Dornish Palace and Gardens
The golden crown of Andalusia, it’s no surprise that Seville and its Royal Alcázar Palace were chosen as a majestic setting in season five as the Dornish capital Sunspear and its beautiful Water Gardens. Remember Jaime and Bronn’s attempt to rescue Princess Myrcella which didn’t end well for anyone? The bullring in the nearby town of Osuna was the location for Daenarys’ dragon-back escape from the fighting pit of Mereen and Cordoba doubled as the city of Volantis.
Scotland: Discover the Wonders of Winterfell
A gateway to the most northern delights of the British Isles, Scotland is a country which oozes medieval character; just one of the many reasons it was selected for the first ever episode of the hit series. Why not go back to where it all began and unravel the plot in an authentic Scottish setting like Doune Castle? A chocolate-box assortment of rolling hillsides, lush greenery and expansive lochs awaits when embarking on a Scottish short break, not to mention the treasure trove of historic cities such as Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen.
Whichever one of these short breaks take your fancy, you’re sure to have your GoT appetite well and truly whetted. But don’t just take our word for it; experience these much loved locations without the screen.
