The seaside village of Carnlough plays a pivotal role in the filming of Game of Thrones. On-screen, it transformed into the free city of Braavos.
It is here that we see a lot of Arya Stark’s most significant character development. She comes to Braavos to find Jaqen H’ghar, and learns how to become a faceless assassin. She also nearly meets her end in this city, when the Waif confronts her and she has to fight for her life.
Exploring Carnlough you will find some notable locations from the show. The stone harbour steps leading down to the canal have become iconic among GOT fans. Here we see Arya pull herself out of the water after being attacked. Bleeding from stab wounds, she struggles up the steps in an attempt to flee danger.
Beside the spot now stands a plaque with information about the scene and the filming that went on there.
