Spectacular looking, would be nice to see them when the sun is going down for a bit of added effect, but a beautiful piece of nature.

The Dark Hedges has sky rocketed in popularity recently thanks to a certain tv show, and it is definitely worth a visit. Due to it's increased popularity it can get quite busy and parking can proved difficult. Everyone aims to get their perfect photo here as well which is difficult with the crowds that stop by. I would not let... More

Worth a visit for GoT fans. Just imagine yourself travelling along the kings road. Try it in the dark!

We came very early and had spectacular views and lots of privacy as we were almost alone. It was spoiled by someone parked at the bottom end. Really there should be parking off in one of the fields, along with restroom facilities. We had to go behind a gate and I discarded my used tissues in the bins but the... More

It was close to dusk when we finally found The Dark Hedges (they can be easy to miss so drive slowly!) so we were hoping for a slightly spooky walk. We parked at the very end and began our walk. As soon as we started walking a giant tour bus pulled up and let off a whole bus full of... More

Really nice trees either side of a road. Look blummin' great though. It might be an idea to have traffic control during busy periods what with everyone stopping their cars to get out and take photos.

Not being " Game of Thrones " viewers we have never been. Even without this added incentive, I would highly recommend visiting if you are in the vicinity. It is a strangely atmospheric place in a beautiful setting. It is pretty much impossible to get a photo without a car or people in it! The trees are beautiful and their... More

As my title suggests, our trip to the Dark Hedges was taken at a busy time of the day. However, we stayed patient and got some great shots as dusk was approaching and the sun was setting. Would recommend going early in the morning for sunrise. Definitely a worthwhile trip.
