What to see

1. The Red Keep

The Red Keep is the most famous monument in the capital and an integral part of your King’s Landing holiday. Overlooking the busy bay, the Red Keep is the fortress and foundation of the capital. The Great Hall, The Tower of the Hand, The White Sword Tour, The Maidenvault, The Godswood and, of course, The Traitor’s Walk sit within the great walls.

2. Iron Throne

The Iron Throne is the star attraction of this holiday destination. Created in 1 AC, many a’good folk have sat on this throne - forged from the 1,000 swords that were surrendered to Aegon in the War of Conquest. While you may not be able to sit on it (made from 1,000 swords, would you really want to?), it certainly makes for a good Insta story.

3. Flea Bottom

Don’t be put off by the name; this is a true taste of King’s Landing - particularly with Bowl of Brown originating here. Flea Bottom is the poorest slum district in the capital, but there’s a real sense of community here. The streets are full of tanneries, inns, alehouses, brothels and pot-shops serving the aforementioned stew.

4. Dragonpit Dome

The Dragonpit was part of the very legend of King’s Landing, holding the Targaryen dragons. The dome - the location for King Aegon II’s coronation - today has fallen into disrepair; the doors have been sealed for more than a century. But, that could be changing in the not too distant future.

5. Fishmonger’s Square

Fishmonger’s Square is located within Mud Gate, home to sea captains, fishmongers and all walks of life. The streets are littered with market stalls and food vendors, serving up catch of the day and fresh rat skewers.


What to eat

From years-old broth to fresh rat meat - King’s Landing certainly deserves a foody reputation.

1 penny (£0.77)

After dark, King’s Landing turns into a very different place. The taverns throw open their doors and stay open ‘till late.

The Broken Anvil is one of the more popular inns in King’s Landing, offering food, drink and a bed for the night. The inn, overlooking the Gate of the Gods, has seen plenty of people come through their wrought doors - including royalty.

The Old Inn on Eel Alley has played host to the likes of Queen Cersei and Jaime Lannister. The inn is tucked away on a side street in the centre of King’s Landing, promising good drinks, a rowdy crowd and a down-to-earth landlady.


Street of Steel: is the location for the top smiths in the area. Starting on Fishmonger’s Square, this street hosts Tobho Mott’s famous smith shop; Ser Loras Tyrell and Lord Renly Baratheon are just some of the customers.

Street of Flour: This is where you’ll get a taste of baked goods, playing host to numerous bakeries. At the very end of the street, you can turn into Flea Bottom.

Street of the Sisters: This offers a more cultured experience for the discerning traveller, connecting the Great Sept of Baelor to the Dragonpit. The Great Sept is the heart of the capital. Please remember to be respectful, lest you be thrown in the dungeons for the duration of your holiday.
