The UK and Northern Ireland have so many wonderful places, rich in character and wonder, so much so that many films and tv series use it as their scene setters. From wonderful castles to cloud laden mountains, the views are stunning. And in particular Northern Ireland which has become such a popular location with film producers in recent years. It has stunning, varied landscapes and surroundings, some of which may look very familiar if you are a fan of certain movies and series.

Also, Belfast’s Titanic Studios is the scene setting of some of the interior shoots including The Eyrie and Throne Room.
I absolutely love GOT, and even more so that alot of it is filmed within the beautiful setting of Northern Ireland.
The fabulous Line of Duty Series 3 is also set in Northern Ireland, with series 2 having been filmed in Belfast.
