Make your way through the enchanting Scottish village that was chosen to be a part of the drama-fantasy series on Starz. The sprawling scenic views are just one of the area's fascinating features. Executive producer Maril Davis shared why the special spot was her favorite place to film.

"We shoot the standing stones up at Kinloch Rannoch and I have a soft spot for this magical place," Davis told Travel + Leisure in 2017. "It truly lives up to the 'four seasons in one day' phenomenon that’s common in Scotland. While shooting up there for season two, we experienced bright blue skies, snow, rain, and gale force winds — all in the span of one hour!"

Walk, bike or drive down Bregagh Road in Northern Ireland to reminisce about the good old days when Sunday nights were solely reserved for watching the HBO hit. The 18th-century beech-tree-lined road served as the haunting set for the Kingsroad, which connected some of GoT's most important locations, including Winterfell and King's Landing.

Take a selfie (but make it quick!) outside of the two-story San Francisco residence that served as the Tanner family home, located on 1709 Broderick Street. The show's executive producer Jeff Franklin, who purchased the place in 2016, had every intention of restoring the home to mirror the actual set of the show but ran into issues once neighbors stepped in to hault his plans, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. His neighbors said that Franklin was using the home to garner attention for Fuller House, which brought hundreds of tourists to the neighborhood each day. Franklin, who was fired as producer of Fuller House in 2018, has since put the home back on the market for $5.995 million.

Do you have the guts to visit murder house? If you do, try to respectfully keep your time there short while you soak up the spooky vibes. The couple who bought Rosenheim Mansion, which was featured in the FX show's first season, is suing their realtor because they’re reportedly tormented by trespassers daily, citing hundreds of fans who attempt to enter their home and take photos in the yard. While this AHS destination is cool to see up close, fans should admire the home from a safe distance to avoid encroaching on the private property.
