When you think Game of Thrones, you think about the Stark's and their ancestral home of Winterfell....Lucky for us fans, the show decided to use a real life location early on, rather than shooting in a studio,and you can now visit it!
Castle Ward in Northern Ireland, otherwise known as Winterfell, is home to lots of iconic scenes from the first couple of seasons of the show.....we took a little visit to see if our archery were skills were better than Bran's......

When the show's makers were looking for a medieval city on the sea to stand in for King's Landing from Season two onwards, they looked no further than Dubrovnik, a walled town in Croatia. George RR Martin himself said he couldnt imagine anywhere better!
I had the chance to spend a week in Dubrovnik, taking a private Game of Thrones tour and exploring a bit of Qarth as well!
