The creators of HBO’s Game of Thrones set up shop in various locations around the world, including Spain, Croatia, Morocco, and Scotland. For those looking for a more immersive experience with the world of Westeros, you might want to follow in the footsteps of these diehard fans.
Game of Thrones aficionados have been flocking to the sites to experience King’s Landing, Winterfell, Astapor, and more, according to Mashable. Photos showcase the men and women, dressed in full Westerosian garb and brandishing swords, traversing the locales.
Some of the spots featured in the images are The Dark Hedges, a famous road in Northern Island tapped for the King’s Road in season 2; Audley’s Field, used for the backdrop of Robb Stark’s camp; and Ballintoy Harbour, where we see Theon Greyjoy arriving on the Iron Islands.
According to the BBC, Game of Thrones has helped bring in between £21 million and £23 million of revenue a year to Northern Ireland from 2010 to 2014. That estimates to around £110 million (about $169 million).
