From Dragonstone in Spain to Jon Snow’s Icelandic bolthole: Where season 7 of Game of Thrones was filmed (and what that might hint about the plot going forward)
Game of Thrones fans were once again on the edge of their seat following Sunday’s latest episode.
And with the action-packed new season comes a whole line-up of breath-taking new locations.
Production has jumped around since the filming of the first season, with Ireland, Iceland, Malta and Croatia serving as some of the main settings in the past.
Since filming commenced for season seven in August 2016 and ended in February 2017, the studio has been based in Belfast, but plenty of the key locations were moved to Spain – both its coast and around some of its ancient monuments.
So what do these new destinations tell us about the unfolding plot? Well, it looks like Spain’s Castillo de Almodovar might serve as the setting for a major battle in Highgarden, the seat of House Tyrell; and it seems likely that the Ruins of Italica in Seville will host some epic dragon action in Kings Landing in the coming episodes.
Here, we presents the grand and beautiful new film locations for the HBO hit’s latest season – and they’re all places you can visit in real life yourself.
