If your grasp of Game Of Thrones geography only extends as far as 'Winterfell = North, King's Landing = South', then this is the interactive, zoom-able map of Westeros for you.

Fully detailed and beautifully presented, the best bit is you can set how far into the series you are (to avoid any spoilers) then have it highlight individual character journeys, meaning you can finally figure out where the hell Daenerys Targaryen is.

Geeky, but useful.


The most comprehensible index of the show's characters, actors, history and production notes on the web, this is your go-to site for filling in gaps in your knowledge or settling arguments with your viewing partner. And if you really are a fanatic, you can help update some of the articles, too.

For the source of all Game Of Thrones-related memes, look no further than the show's Reddit page. This is where 'Stupid Ned Stark' and the more recent 'Jorah Mormont Friendzone' funnies originated, along with lots of others.

A good place to cheer yourself up after the latest brutal killing of your favourite character.

Whether you're after Dothraki roasted goat with sweetgrass and honey, Tywin's special rack of venison or a plate of 'Jon Snow's Breakfast' (black pudding, sausage, bacon, duck eggs and dark beer – not bad for the Wall), Inn At The Crossroads, the official guide to the food of Game Of Thrones, has the recipe you need.

Specifically, the following accounts (though there are a lot more): 

Bran Stark (Isaac H. Wright, who seems a smart boy)

Talisa Stark (Oona Chaplin, who tweets a lot about politics)

Osha (Natalia Tena, who is also the singer in a pretty good band called Molotov Jukebox)

Gendry (Joe Dempsie, who likes footy and Kanye)

Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel, who likes tea)

Hodor (Kristian Nairn, who knows more words than 'Hodor!')

Myrcella Baratheon (Aimee Richardson, who is angling for a recasting)

...and a spoof account pretending to be George RR Martin, the man who wrote the story in the first place.

Specifically:

Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal, who is much more fond of the Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane in real life)

Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen, who doesn't appear to be anything like Reek in real life)

Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey, who is far more cheerful in real life)

The Official Game Of Thrones Account (which features lots of the actors playing with their dolls)

Could a real life Yara have existed during Viking times? Was there a medieval version of the Red Wedding? And what exactly does Cersei Lannister have to do with Anne Boleyn? Check out this website of essays on the real life historical events that may have inspired George RR Martin to find out.

Finally, visit HBO's website for behind-the-scenes clips, interviews and recaps videos featuring the cast, crew and George RR Martin. This is basically a living, breathing DVD extras section, and the closest you can get to watching a new episode until you can watch a new episode.
