HBO®’s award-winning television series the Game of Thrones® has international audiences hooked on the twists, turns and titillating antics of those seeking to rule the Iron Throne and the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.


This is where the cult series kicked off in its now trademark dramatic fashion, with Ned Stark beheading the Night’s Watch deserter in full view of Jon Snow, Theon Greyjoy and the Stark brothers Robb and Bran. Catelyn captured Tyrion Lannister here and when Bran, Rickon, Osha and Hodor head north to the Wall, it is from here that they look back on Winterfell.
