Stop At: The Dark Hedges, Ballymoney, County Antrim, Northern Ireland
Leaving central Belfast in the morning, the first official stop is the Dark Hedges (around 20 minutes), known as the location where Arya Stark made her escape down The Kings Road.

Duration: 20 minutes
Stop At: Giant's Causeway, Bushmills, County Antrim, Northern Ireland
Stop at the Giant's Causeway (around 1 hour 30 minutes). Explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site with ample time for discovery. Continue to the Giant's Causeway to enjoy around 1.5 hours exploring the 40,000 interlocking hexagonal stone columns on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean.

Stop At: Ballintoy Harbour, Ballintoy, County Antrim, Northern Ireland
Onward to Ballintoy Harbour (where you will get around one hour) to enjoy one of our favourite filming locations on this tour. Experience the scene where Theon comes home for the first time. Your guide will show you where Theon was baptised in front of Balon and Yara, and where Euron was drowned and crowned to be king. The directors of Game of Thrones used this site extensively to film.
