Game of Thrones Season 8 is all set to leave fans glued to their screens from April 14. The official trailer that just dropped on the Internet has already left most of them on the edge of their seats, waiting for more. Well, the show has built a cult fan following all around the world and not just the plotline, but what goes behind-the-scenes is raved about too.

One of the most significant features of the series for seven long years has been its sincere shoot locations that can appeal to just any wanderer. Dear GoT fans, you are not alone when you wish to travel to those magical medieval times! So, have you, the fanatics, been wondering where to travel on your next endeavour? Don't worry, we have your back. Side note: A little help would be if you get a few lessons in Spanish!

The other day, a friend of mine asked me if I knew where Dubrovnik is. As one does, I said, hesitantly, "Maybe." She then went on ahead and explained to me that her bucket list for places to travel is filled with sets of the mega show. As far apart from Spain to Iceland, she told me how she wants to travel all the way. I borrowed her list only to realise how the show is in no comparison to any other show, where the sets are a figment of fabrication, but in the fantastical tales of Game of Thrones, the sets are very real.

Northern Ireland

Buzz is that a major part of Castle Black, Hardhome and The Wall have been shot in Northern Ireland’s well-known hamlet, Magheramorne Quarry. Meanwhile, Winterfell, the House of Stark, has reportedly been filmed in the locales of Moneyglass and Tollymore Forest Park in County Down.


Do you ever wonder where White Walkers get all the snow in the real world? Reynisfjara’s black sand beach near Vik and Kirkjufell are the two locations where GoT makers seem to have brought the winter alive.


According to reports, Seville in Dorne, Basque Country’s San Juan de Gaztelugatxe and Italica Amphitheatre of Santiponce are the major locations which were turned into sets for King’s Landing and House Targaryen’s Dragonstone.


The most popular spot, Dubrovnik, will be back on celluloid as King’s Landing, the capital of the Seven Kingdoms in Season 8. It's no surprise why the Old Town, Church of St. Ignatius of Loyola and Pile Gate are some places visitors mostly flock to.

So, what are you waiting for? Get set to book your tickets for your dream Game of Thrones-themed vacation.
