Finding mesmerising real world locations to appear as Westeros and Essos has been key to the adaptation’s triumph.

HBO’s Game of Thrones is a masterful piece of television. Finding mesmerising real world locations to appear as Westeros and Essos has been key to the adaptation’s triumph.

The people behind the show have literally travelled the world in search of places that could do justice to George R R Martin’s imagined world.

Shooting has taken place in Scotland, Northern Ireland, Malta, Morocco and Croatia (learn more about visiting those locations in our Travelling Game of Thrones Style post).

Brett hopes to one day reach the shores of far-flung Tristan da Cunha, the most remote of all the inhabited archipelagos on Earth…as to what he’ll do when he gets there, he hasn’t a clue. Over the last 10 years, London, New York, Cape Town and Pondicherry have all proudly been referred to as home. Now it’s Copenhagen’s turn, where he lends his travel expertise to momondo.com.
