This infographic by travel agency Lawrence of Morocco reveals the actual shooting locations used in the hit HBO TV series Game of Thrones. The main headquarters is at Paint Hall studios in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where most of the interior sets are housed; the better part of location shooting takes place in Northern Ireland, but many other European nations have been used as well.
Most locations have benefited from increased tourism due to the publicity, but not everyone has been pleased. It is rumored that Maltese officials complained that protected habitats were damaged during the filming, forcing future shooting to move to Croatia in season 2. Laws involving the transportation of animals have also required filming in the U.S., such as the season three episode "The Bear and the Maiden Fair, " and the season five episodes involving a Direwolf.
