After last year’s popular article detailing the filming locations for HBO’s hit show Game of Thrones we decided to keep track of the filming locations and release a similar infographic this year. There were two main reasons behind our thinking;
1) The majority of the show’s stunning backdrops are bookable via our search engine
2) We saw an increase through our booking site to the locations in which filming takes place. For instance, tickets to Dubrovnik in Croatia, a filming location and located close to Lokrum, another shooting site, increased between 8-16% dependent on the travel mode. Moreover tickets for flights to the island of Malta rose by 26% whilst journeys to Belfast, the closest major city for scenes shot in Winterfell, increased by 5-11% for various travel modes.
From these findings we felt that the info is not only received well by fans, but also useful as advertising for the locations themselves. With this in mind we bring you the Real World Travel Guide to Game of Thrones, updated for Season 5!
This year’s infographic includes new information on the filming location of Spain, a country previously unvisited by the production crew.
