Where Was House of the Dragon Shot? All Real-Life Westeros Locations

While House of the Dragon will return us to Westeros, several of the filming sites for the Game of Thrones prequel are entirely new. Here’s a list of them all.

House of the Dragon on HBO has numerous locales made famous by Game of Thrones, as well as some new ones – here are all the real-life sites where the Game of Thrones prequel was filmed. Based on part of the events recounted in George R.R. Martin’s 2018 novel Fire & Blood, House of the Dragon will center on the House Targaryen and the machinations that would eventually lead to a full-fledged civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons. House of the Dragon, on the other hand, will be set about two centuries before the events of Game of Thrones, concentrating instead on Westeros at the height of the Targaryen reign.

While many characters will vie for the Iron Throne in House of the Dragon, the teaser establishes Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy) and Daemon (Matt Smith) as the key rivals, as the king’s daughter and brother, Viserys I. (Paddy Considine). Viserys I’s second wife, Alicent Hightower (Olivia Cooke), is another strong character who, in the novel, actually backed her son Aegon II’s ascension to the kingdom over Rhaenyra’s. Whether or whether House of the Dragon deviates from the Targaryen history described in Fire & Blood, it will undoubtedly include all of the power moves made famous by its parent book.

Following the show’s long-lasting success, filming locales such as La Valletta in Malta and Dubrovnik in Croatia have become tourism magnets for Game of Thrones fans. House of the Dragon features several locales from Game of Thrones, although most of them are restricted to England and Spain. Here are the real-life Westeros sites for the House of the Dragon.
