Game of Thrones is one of the biggest phenomenons to ever have graced our television screens. Okay, so they were books first, but still… the programmes are really the visualisation of the phenomenon.. but still, it has taken the world by storm. Why not head to Belfast with this deal to see some of the locations where it was filmed?
Game of Thrones Tour in Northern Ireland
The deal I have found you is available on travelbird.co.uk for just £57.50 per person. This includes your 1 Night Hotel stay, Breakfast and an 8 Hour Tour of Game of Thrones filming Locations. It is worth noting that there is also the possibility to upgrade this to a 2 Night stay for only £159 per double room.
With this deal you will be staying in the Botanic Rest, which has received a TripAdvisor rating of 4/5. Whilst you’re staying here you will be provided with a daily Breakfast. This hotel is located in the centre of Belfast, so it’s the perfect place to use as a base before heading off on your 8 hour tour. It’s worth noting that if you’re booking your flights on a one night stay, you should definitely make sure you have enough time to get to the airport after your tour; it finishes early for nobody and doesn’t finish until around 17:30 – 18:30.
The main highlight of this deal is the Game of Thrones Tour! A lot of people don’t realise that Game of Thrones has been, and still is being, shot all over the world in places like Iceland and Morocco as well as on our own doorstep in Northern Ireland. This tour allows you to see some of the most iconic scenes of the series’.
You throw in Castle Black – where Ned Stark beheaded a man who had deserted the Black Watch; definitely the point at which most viewers realised how brutal it was going to be. Combine this with a visit to the caves where Melisandre of Asshai gave birth to the really creepy Shadow Assassin, a visit to Storm’s End where you’ll be able to picture Renly Baratheon’s camp and also follow in the footsteps of Theon Greyjoy as he returned back to his home; the Iron Islands, before he got a little bit inappropriate with his sister.
You’ll also visit the escape route used by Arya Stark, when she dressed up as a boy to try and avoid the same fate as her father. As well as this, you’ll be able to see some beautiful scenery and just revel in the moment. This is definitely a deal worth considering.
FYI: if you book the one night stay, please make sure that you have enough time to catch your train or plane home as there’s no chance to complete the tour early. The tour will be on the day after you check-in at the Botanic Rest and ends at 19:00.
