Travel Man - Richard Ayoade and Stephen Merchant

Richard Ayoade does Dubrovnik with comedian Stephen Merchant. Having checked in to their fancy rooms at a 16th-century townhouse, they head off round one of the world’s best-preserved medieval cities.

A Game of Thrones tour features some of the show’s most celebrated locations. There’s also some ston oysters on the terrace of the famous Hotel Excelsior; a buggy safari on Mount Srd; and a visit to a hilltop fort still littered with landmines dating from the war of the 1990s.

As Croatia is the birthplace of the cravat, Richard and Stephen seek out neckware, before taking a ferry to the cursed island of Lokrum, home to a population of peacocks. But before heading home, the big question is, who will get to sit on the iron throne?

Travel Man – 48 Hours in Dubrovnik – Monday at 8.00pm on Channel 4.
