At the end of June 2011 we had the privilege of hosting some of the crew from the Game of Thrones as they filmed part of Season 2, Episode 1 on the Downhill Beach in front of the Beachhouse. In the scene the Red Priestess Melisandre burns the wooden statues of The Seven-faced God from Dragonstone’s sept, as an offering to the Lord of Light. The statues were absolutely incredible and the whole undertaking of the filming was more technical than we could have imagined. So for you Game of Thrones fans here are some of our photos and videos of the filming of the ‘Burning of the Seven’ on Dragonstone Beach.
