This Game of Thrones Travel Book Makes Us Want To Buy A Westeros Visa
Like Lonely Planet, but - you know - totally fake and fanboy-friendly...
Ever wondered where the best place to stay in Dorne is or where you can find the best Bowl ‘o’ Brown in King’s Landing? Well now you can find out thanks to this handy travel guide to Westeros.
Based on the entirely fictional realm set out by George R. R. Martin’s best-selling books and the hit HBO show currently airing on Sky Atlantic, it’s just like the travel guide you bought for your summer holiday in the Malaga last year or the one that you picked up whilst planning that backpacking trip to South East Asia you’ve always talked about doing; only it’s based entirely on made-up places.
The end result is a meticulously researched guide that transforms Martin’s literary landscape into a holiday destination, with advice on everything from where to eat, what to pack and how to ensure your head stays attached to your shoulders for the duration of your stay.
Written with tongue lodged firmly in cheek it’s a very different take to the weird and wonderful world of Westeros, but one will strike a chord with any fan who’s ever wondered what it might be like to take a walking tour of the Iron Islands or take a Giant-spotting safari north of The Wall.
And with the Pound currently trending strong against the Golden Dragon there’s never been a better time to travel, even if it is only in your head.
A Travel Guide to the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros is out now.
