This road is 1 to 2 kilometres long. There is a free parking facility. It is typically famous because it is a Game of Thrones location.

I am a game of thrones fan but had never bothered to go see the dark hedges. Thought I would go today before the last season starts in April. They are definitely worth going to see. Such an atmosphere and full of history and mystique....More
