Game of Thrones is everywhere! Even those who don’t watch the Emmy Award winning show know about it, thanks to its obsessive fan base which is spread all across the world. Being one such diehard fan, I couldn’t pass up on a chance to experience the real-world locations from the show in Northern Ireland, on my visit to the United Kingdom last year.
The full-day tour covered quite a few locations, but unfortunately did not include the Winterfell Castle (Next time!) So our first stop was Carncastle in Ballygally, which had the entire outdoor set for Castle Black and the Wall. The entire area was cordoned off so we couldn’t actually go on the set, but being so close to the Night’s Watch stronghold was surreal enough for all the fans aboard the bus, to elicit excited cheers.
