Discover where it all began on the Game of Thrones Winterfell Tour from Belfast. Visit locations that have featured in all 8 seasons of GOT on the unique adventure through Westeros. With a local guide by your side, learn how Northern Ireland has been vital in bringing the Seven Kingdoms to life.
Starting your tour in Belfast City Centre, you will be greeted by your tour guide. Having appeared on the show themselves, they will be able to fill you in on insider knowledge throughout the day ahead.
From here you will first stop at the site of Robb Stark’s camp. It was here that he gathered his army after his father’s death. On this site is the 12th-century Inch Abbey. Eagle-eyed GOT fans will recognize it as the ruin where Robb was crowned King in the North.
Tollymore Forest is the next stop. This is one of the first locations ever to be shown on the TV series. The show opens here, where we see a group of Wildings being chased and killed by White Walkers. On a happier note, this is also the place where the Starks find a litter of direwolf pups that become companions to each Stark child. And that’s not the last time that direwolves will be mentioned on this tour.
After grabbing lunch at a traditional Irish pub, where you can eat like a king on local produce, you will get a chance to meet some direwolves in person. Odin and Thor, who played two of the Starks’ canine companions, will be available for photographs… and cuddles. Just try not to get too starstruck.
The last stop on this tour brings you to Castle Ward Estate. This 18th-century mansion doubles up as the stronghold of Winterfell. An iconic GOT location, it’s the perfect place to get some fun souvenir photos. Your guide will even provide you with some costumes and props to make it even more authentic.
The Game of Thrones Winterfell Tour from Belfast allows you to follow in the footsteps of your favourite characters, while also dressing like them! This is a fun, adventure-filled experience that makes a great day out for any GOT fan!
