Fans can relive their favourite scenes when the cult television series will be taking place on the grounds of the 820-acre Castle Ward estate, the National Trust property that filled in for ‘Winterfell’. This was the ancestral home of the Start family for most of season one of the series.

 

There will be reenactment of the arrival of king’s procession when he visits the House Stark. Medieval games will also be played like the jousting shows on horseback, sword sparring, falconry, archery demonstrations and jesters.

 

There will be medieval fare like the roast hog and venison pie, washed down with cider and ale.

 

Audley’s castle will provide glimpses of the filming location; visitors can take pictures against the background of the Winterfell Courtyard.  Interactive Game of Thrones themed puppet shows and workshops will also be held.

 

Visitors will get to meet the special guest on site the two Stark family direwolf dogs. Actor Boyd Rankin will showcase a selection of weapons from the show in one of the stalls.

 

Kingsroad, the longest road among the seven kingdoms on the fictional continent of Westeros will be constructed for the visitors. Kingsroad will be connected to the ‘Inn at the Crossroads’ for performances to be enjoyed by the guests.
