An A-Z of NI: G for Game of Thrones

An A-Z of NI: G for Game of Thrones

You voted for G and Game Of Thrones came out on top. I couldn’t think of a more awesome G in terms of movie, career and tourism legacy for the whole Game of Thrones Territory. HBO’s decision to film much of the series here was a game changer.

A whole new tourist industry has appeared with attractions and activities popping up around key filming locations.

The Antrim & Causeway Coast Filming Locations

Head to the Antrim Coast and the Causeway coast for many of the outdoor filming locations including The Dark Hedges. A beautiful avenue of Beech Trees used in Season 2 Episode 1. Used in the scene where Arya escaped King’s Landing along the Kimgsroad.

Other key filming locations on the route:

  • Portstewart Strand - Season 5 Episode 4

  • Downhill Beach - Season 2 Episode 1

  • Binevenagh - Season 6 Episode 1

  • Fair Head - Season 7 Episode 3, 5 & 6

  • Ballintoy - Season 2 Episode 2 & 3, Season 6 episode 5

Glass of Thrones Trail

Follow the Glass of Thrones Trail in Belfast in the Titanic Quarter, and pass by the Titanic Studios where much of the filming took place.
 The trail starts as you cross over the Lagan Weir Bridge and consists of stained glass windows depicting scenes from each season of the series. Stand on the plinth and get a photo, they are colourful and epic!
