The Dark Hedges is an avenue of beech trees along Bregagh Road between Armoy and Stranocum in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The trees form an atmospheric tunnel that has been used as a location in HBO's popular television series Game of Thrones, which has resulted in the avenue becoming a tourist attraction.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The Dark Hedges originated in the eighteenth century.The Stuart family planted the rows of beech trees, designed to impress visitors as they approached the entrance to their mansion, Gracehill house, named after James Stewarts wife Grace Lynd.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Two centuries later, the trees remain a magnificent sight and have become one of the most photographed natural phenomena in Northern Ireland.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The Gracehill mansion still stands and is today a golf course, but it is the beech trees that brings countless tourists to this part of the country.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
When the light is right and the crowds are gone, it's a mystical feeling to stand on the silent road.A place where anything can happen with a little bit of magic.⁣
