Winterfell Or Castle Black? ‘Game Of Thrones’ Fans Can Choose Their Favorite Set As New Year Destination!

Published on 1 October, 2018 at 1:31 pm By

I bet Northern Ireland would love that. An opportunity to actually become one tourist attraction, rather than ‘just’ a shooting locale. After all, it was the location for a good ten years for one of the most watched shows ever – ‘Game of Thrones’. To celebrate the show’s legacy, the makers have decided to convert some famous ‘Game of Thrones’ set locations to be made public by 2019, the same year when they release the final season. As a ‘GOT’ fan, I will certainly want to visit the locations and my most favorite landmark – the Stark home aka Winterfell, which was filmed in Castle Ward in Northern Ireland.

Now isn’t it exciting (as for me) to experience an actual series, by walking through it yourself?! I can only imagine the set locations to be ‘as real’ as one would expect. I mean, visiting a Game of Thrones set would be as big a fantasy as the show itself!

In fact, the  GOT themes in Northern Ireland are already flourishing at a high rate! Here, Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, films a scene in Carnlough.

 

 

The expected (iconic) standing sets which are likely to be open to the public are Winterfell, including materials from all seasons.

 

 

Undoubtedly, it is one of the most popular locations in the TV series and you can enjoy the ‘Winterfell Festival’ which takes place at Castle Ward.

Not just the GOT set locations, but art, weapons and other props from the ten years of filming will also be on display. Whoa!

 

 

Certainly, as a tourist, I would love to see the displays of costumes, props, weapons, and other production materials from my favorite series.

 

 

Let’s see what fans can expect more from this new year’s gift by HBO!

1. The stunning Dark Hedges tree tunnel that lies near Ballymoney in County Antrim.

 

The Dark Hedges featured in the show as part of the King’s Road.

2. A formal studio tour (possibly) of Linen Mill Studios, close to Banbridge

 



It was used to represent Riverrun, the house of the Tully family.

 

 

3. Magheramorne Quarry which doubles as the film set for Castle Black

 

If you recall, this was the primary headquarters used by the Night’s Watch.

 

 

4. The Titanic film studios in Belfast will be open to the public as well!

 

This was used to represent King’s Landing as part of the HBO fantasy show.

 

 

5. As part of the GOT set locations, we can’t forget Downhill Strand, a seven-mile beach overlooked by Mussenden Temple

 

This ‘beach’ locale was visited by Stannis Baratheon in the series.

 

 

According to Jeff Peters, HBO’s VP of licensing and retail, ‘The GOT set locations will be major attractions in Northern Ireland’.
