GRIPPED BY THE DRAMA OF GAME OF THRONES?

Go to… Dubrovnik This me­dieval Croa­t­ian city is the set­ting for King’s Land­ing, home to the schem­ing Lan­nis­ters. In­side its 14th-cen­tury walls is a labyrinth of tiny lanes, stone houses and de­fence tur­rets. The main street, Stradun, is lined with shops, restau­rants and cafés. Walk round the top of the city walls for a bird’s-eye view of Dubrovnik’s beau­ti­ful ter­ra­cotta rooftops. Or catch a ferry to nearby Lokrum is­land, where the his­toric monastery has a mu­seum which de­tails the film­ing of GOT, com­plete with a replica Iron Throne to pose for pic­tures on!

HOW TO DO IT: Bri­tish Air­ways ( ba. com), easyJet (easyjet.com) and Monarch (monarch.co.uk) fly from UK air­ports direct to Dubrovnik. Visit se­cretescapes.com to find a ho­tel; they of­fer up to 70 per cent off.

FELL MADLY IN LOVE WITH LOVE IS­LAND?

Head to… Ma­jorca Who could fail to have been se­duced by the sun, sea, and sand of the north-east coast of this beau­ti­ful Balearic is­land? The Love Is­land villa, which spawned re­la­tion­ships between Kem and Am­ber (above), Olivia and Chris, and even Mar­cel and Gabby, was lo­cated up in the hills, on the out­skirts of the sleepy town of Sant Llorenç des Car­das­sar. Check out the stylish Ho­tel Can So­laies for a din­ner to re­mem­ber – it’s where Johnny and Camilla went for a date, and where Mon­tana and Am­ber had cock­tails. The nearby, buzzy beach town of Cala Mil­lor has plenty to of­fer hol­i­day­mak­ers, from golden sands to wa­ter­sports, as well as shops, restau­rants, bars and cafés ga­lore; per­fect for spot­ting any Is­lan­ders who come back to re­live their ro­mances!

HOW TO DO IT: Three nights at the 4T Pro­tur Playa Cala Mil­lor costs from £285 on a half-board ba­sis, in­clud­ing flights from Lon­don Lu­ton on 18 Oc­to­ber, thom­son.co.uk

The ho­tel of love!
