Game of Thrones locations are real places across Europe and Africa.
While much of the filming took place in Northern Ireland, both on location and in a Belfast studio, other important settings like King’s Landing and Iron Island can be found elsewhere in Europe.

Most of Winterfell Castle was filmed in Northern Ireland, with the exception of one additional location at Doune Castle in Scotland.
Where was King’s Landing filmed?
In an interview for HBO, Game of Thrones star Conleth Hill confirmed that the exteriors of King’s Landing were filmed in Croatia while the interiors were filmed in Northern Ireland.
