As they approached the entrance to their Georgian mansion, Gracehill House, it was intended as a compelling landscape feature to impress visitors. The trees remain a magnificent sight two centuries later and have become one of Northern Ireland's most photographed natural phenomena. In fact, in HBO's epic series Game of Thrones ®, representing the Kingsroad, the iconic trees were used as a filming location. 

Featured Scene: Season 2, Episode 1: The North Remembers–Arya Stark escaped from King's Landing on King's Road, disguised as a boy. She's in a cart with Yoren, Gendry, Hot Pie and others who go north on the Kingsroad to join the Night's Watch. Find out about other Northern Ireland Game of Thrones ® Filming Locations at

There is limited parking at the entrance to the road so best to park over the road at the golf club and it is then a short walk through the grounds to The Dark Hedges and make sure you get there early morning to avoid tourist buses as they will ruin the amazing photographs.  (Around 10:30 am this places was overrun with giant tour busses and people climbing the trees. )
