Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Northern Ireland has a history with fantasy. C. S. Lewis made no secret of the fact he used its roaming landscapes as inspiration for the fictional realm of Narnia. Sixty years after Lewis first children's novel was published, Northern Ireland continues to be a prime location for the make-believe. The television series "Game of Thrones" uses designated spaces known as "Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty" for filming locations. This project aims to discover why Northern Ireland continues to be chosen as a fictional environment, and what separates these "Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty" from others.
