The hit HBO series became a worldwide phenomenon over the course of its award winning seven seasons. Download our Game of Thrones location map to see where your favourite scene was shot. Castle Ward had no idea what it was getting into when it agreed to the filming of a pilot for a fantasy series. There had been small shoots before but nothing of this scale.
The staff were a little star-struck when the team of producers and executives flew in from LA to check out the site, and it was agreed that the area was simply perfect to provide the setting of the home of the Stark family. The farmyard was transformed into Winterfell with a large set, helped by a large amount of CGI in post-production. Although the set no longer remains, it's easy to see how the Tower House became the imposing entrance to Winterfell.
From toCastle Ward hosted the pilot, scenes from Season 1 and a few in season 2. After the first season aired and it was clear the show was a bit of a hit, a version of the set was built in Titanic studios, as continued filming on a heritage site in a National Trust property wasn't sustainable.
Being able to bring George to meet so many fans of the show in one of the places where it all began was a real treat for us. Listen to George talk about the impact and legacy of his writing on the landscape of Northern Ireland when he was interviewed just before the event in our Cornmill in Our Shop and Secondhand Bookshop are now open daily and the Tea-room is open for takeaway and outdoor seating. Our outdoor spaces will remain open for walkers to enjoy.
