36 Super Cool Game of Thrones Locations You Can Really Visit

List RulesVote for the Game of Thrones filming locations that you'd like to see one day.

You might think that Game of Thrones - with its medieval setting and fantastical stories of sorcery and dragons - would not have many real life locations to visit, but you'd be wrong. Although the scenery on the HBO show is often as epic as the story lines, a lot of the exteriors and outdoor scenes are shot in very real locations in places like Iceland, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Malta, Spain, and Croatia. What are the coolest Game of Thrones filming locations you can visit?

Do you want to propose to your own Khalessi by the Azure Window where Drogo and Daenerys got married? It's a real place. You can also see the fortress where Ned Stark was beheaded, the beech tree-lined road where Arya Stark went on the run, and more of the picturesque locations that we've come to know as King's Landing, Winterfell, the North, the Iron Islands and so on.

Which Game of Thrones location is number one on your must-visit list? Vote for your favorite real life locations of Westeros and Essos and start planning an adventure of your own.
