Malta’s role in hit HBO series Game of Thrones might have been cut short, but despite only being used as a filming location in Season 1, the Mediterranean island still managed to make a lasting impression. Doubling up as the fictional King's Landing, the capital of the Seven Kingdoms, Malta took center stage throughout the first season, with its historic fortresses, sunbaked landscapes and rocky coastline providing a striking backdrop to the unfolding action. The dramatic sites certainly saw no shortage of plot twists - this was where soon-to-be villain King Joffrey ascended to the throne and honorable hero Ned Stark was mercilessly beheaded during the shocking season finale.

Designed by the series’ location manager, Game of Thrones tours in Malta offer a scenic introduction to the islands’ highlights, offering fans the chance to discover the original film locations used to bring the mythical Seven Kingdoms to life. You’ll get to explore the walled city of Mdina, where landmarks like the city gate, Mesquita Square and Copper Street evoke the regal grandeur of the on-screen King’s Landing; visit Fort Manoel in Gżira, which you’ll recognize as the Great Sept of Baelor church; and take in views of the ‘Azure Window’, a natural archway of rocks found on the coast of Gozo, where Daenerys Targaryen married Khal Drogo. Additional highlights include the King’s Landing Skull Chamber in Birgu; the17th-century Kalkara fortress, which doubled up as the gates of the Red Keep; and Illyrios Palace, used in scenes with the Stark family.
