  • A beautiful landscape. It is a good place to stop if you are on route through the area, stretch your legs a bit and take some pictures, it gives much more game.

  • Getting a little too popular since 'Game of Thrones', so the full effect is diluted by traffic and crowds. Just had to start raining when we arrived, but this seemed to enhance the experience. Certain...  read more »
  • The site was closed to driving when i arrived today, preparing for filming the new Transformers film. It was explained that a few trees fell recently through a violent storm, but what remains still ha...  read more »
  • So much atmosphere here! Too many people know about it though so plenty of them around. Cannot have a quiet photo. The iconic trees have been used as a filming location in Game of Thrones, representing the King's Road. Season 2, episode 1: On the King' s Road, Arya Stark has escaped from King’s Landing, disguised as a boy. She is with Yoren, Gendry, Hot Pie and others who are to join the Night’s Watch, in a cart, travelling north on the King’s Road.
  • Game of thrones fans will love it. Even if you are not a fan you'll love the tree tunnel. But really it's hard to get a pic clicked with no one in the background.
  • It's beautiful, but at the end of the day it's just a tree lined street. If you are close by, is great for that 5 min stop (the whole street will be crowded with cars, so don't expect to get a photo without one), but if you are going to drive more than 45 min out of your way, I'd spend the time going elsewhere that offers a longer entertainment possibility.
  • I gave this 5 stars because I thought it was one of the best "bangs for your buck": it's free! After paying to see so many local attractions it was finally nice to see something that didn't cost anything but time and gas.
  • Beautiful and eerie place. Try to be there early morning when the fog still lingers and the tourists don't
