Pose for pictures, and then continue your journey north.
The next destination is Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge – an iconic crossing that connects the mainland to Carrick-a-Rede Island. While not used in Game of Thrones®, the bridge is framed by magnificent headland that provided a backdrop for several scenes.
Take a break for lunch (own expense) at Ballintoy Harbour (Lordsport Harbour in the series) and then travel to the UNESCO-listed Giant’s Causeway to explore at leisure. While the location hasn’t been used in Game of Thrones®, the site is the Causeway Coast’s showpiece, and it’s well worth visiting while in the area.
