Game of Thrones Tour – Filming Locations Cycle Tours @Winterfell Castle

Cycling Route
Castle Ward Estate, located just 40 minutes from Belfast, was used extensively for the filming of George R. R. Martin's epic adaption of his Game of Thrones® novels.

Many of the Game of Thrones® pivotal scenes were filmed on-site: ‘Winterfell Castle’, ‘King Robert's Arrival to Winterfell’, ‘Bran falls from Winterfell Castle’, ‘The Twins’, ‘Ned’s Picnic’, ‘Brienne Confronts the Stark men’, ‘Robb’s Camp’, ‘Lannister Camp’ and 'Whispering Wood'.

There are 2 self guided Game of Thrones cycle tour options:

Westeros Cycle Trail (2.5hrs)

So now is your chance to tour these epic filming locations for yourself and recreate your own favourite scenes from Game of Thrones®. Firstly you will meet the Master-at-Arms in the ‘Armory & Forge’ who will issue you with a Game of Thrones tour ‘Stark Sack’ to ensure you can protect yourself deep in the North!

Your tour 'Stark Sack' includes:
