This Tour in Northern Ireland Is the Closest You Can Get to Being on 'Game of Thrones'
For mega fans of “Game of Thrones,” it’s now possible to immerse yourself completely in the show.
A castle in Northern Ireland is hosting tours that recreate the best parts of the series.
When guests arrive at Winterfell Castle, they don medieval garb and explore the grounds, making stops at different filming locations. While they’re touring the property, guests may come upon extras from the show and start battling in live re-enactments of fights.
The tour includes stops to see the filming locations of the Lannister camp, a forest that transformed into the area known as “north of the wall” and the tree where Robb Stark and Talisa were secretly wed.
Guests can choose to embark on a cycling tour of 20 different filming locations, learn how to do archery or take a boat tour around the property and view the filming locations from water. There are also options to add on a falconry demonstration, medieval feast, an overnight glamping extension and an opportunity to meet two direwolves, the dogs used in the show.
The castle also hosts bachelor and bachelorette parties for those who want to spend their last single days in a fantasy world.
After their tour of Winterfell, tourists can get a “Game of Thrones” passport which they can use to collect stamps from nearby pubs, shops and bed and breakfasts that display the Stark family crest on their door.
Group tours start at about £29, or about $38. Those who want to experience “Game of Thrones” as in-depth as possible can opt for a private tour, which will set visitors back $500.
