Explore what's beyond the Game of Thrones studio tour

Here are some filming locations that you will explore beyond the Game of Thrones studio:

Carrickfergus Castle
Braavos Location—Carnlough
Cushendun Caves
The Kings Road – Dark Hedges
Castle of Pyke
Carrickfergus Castle

This Norman Castle, located in Carrickfergus, County Antrim, dates back to 1177. While it has never been directly linked to any storyline of the show, the castle has been used as a filming location and is one of the most popular stops in the Game of Thrones tour from Belfast.

Braavos Location—Carnlough

This small fishing village is used as a location for the city of Braavos in Game of Thrones. To be specific, the steps of Carnlough Harbour are filmed in Season 6, a scene where Arya Stark crawls up to the harbor after being attacked by the Waif.

Cushendun Caves

These are a series of several caves that appear in both Season 2 and Season 8 of Game of Thrones. In Season 2, the caves are used as a backdrop for Melisandre giving birth to a shadow baby. Then again, in Season 8, the location serves as the famous battleground for Jaime Lannister and Euron Greyjoy's big fight.

The Kings Road – Dark Hedges

Located in Ballymoney in County Antrim, this avenue of beach trees makes up for the Kings Road in the show. In Season 2, it's this location that Arya Stark escapes from under the disguise of a boy.

Castle of Pyke in Game of Thrones

The Castle of Pyke in Game of Thrones is basically Dunluce Castle, situated in Bushmills, County Antrim. It's used as the seat of House Greyjoy from the show. That said, while in the show, the castle looks like it is on an island, the reality is that it's all special effects.

Game of Thrones studio highlights

Beyond the Wall

Beyond the Wall

Walk around the lands beyond the Wall—untamed, vast, uncharted territory in the northernmost part of Westeros. In the show, the climate of this location was shown to be bitter and harsh. Relive the show memories and inhabit the spirit of the 'free folks' who lived beyond the Wall.

Castle Black

Castle Black

Located at the base of the Wall, Castle Black serves as the headquarters of the Night's Watch. It's a gigantic, fortified castle with thick walls secured by sturdy gates. The tour will transport you to this home of the Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, and you can learn more about how the men defended the realm from here.


How can you go on the Game of Thrones studio tour and not visit the largest, most formidable castle, also known as the ancestral seat of the House Stark? The Winterfell's grounds are known to be older than the city of King's Landing and were built 8000 years ago. While the tower has been attacked several times, it still stands tall today!
