Belfast Famous Black Cab Tours
While you are on our tour you will get to see many of the key sites that will be recognizable from the series. Giving fans a chance to get up close and experience the world of Westeros for themselves. The series has allowed us in Northern Ireland to showcase some of the most beautiful and spectacular sites known to man. This unique, natural landscape has allowed HBO to bring the world of George R.R.Martin’s work to a whole other level of cinematic wonder.
One of the most captivating sites along the North Coast which has really been put on the map is The Dark Hedges. Planted in the 18th Century, these fascinating Beech trees have grown over the years to almost intertwine with each other and are favourites with photographers and painters. It even has its own ghostly background, adding a further air of magical mystery to it. This no doubt added to its appeal in regard to the Game of Thrones producers, and leaving viewers in awe with the closing shots in season two.
Aside from The Dark Hedges, another site along the North Antrim Coast that has been featured in the show is Ballintoy Harbour. This remarkable site is so rich in versatility that it has been doubled up in episodes as a few different scenes. When Theon Greyjoy first returns to the Iron Islands, we see the harbour in all its glory as Theon sets foot back on his homeland. Much later we see Theon and his sister ride along the shore at the far end of the harbour. Whereas on the opposite side of the Ballintoy, in a secluded little Beach, viewers can first see our own, great Liam Cunningham, who plays Ser Davos Seaworth, wait on the shore with Stannis Baratheon.
Hard core fans will be truly satisfied with their experience and will be able to step into this mystical world for themselves.
