The British village of Kings Langley, located 21 miles north of London in Hertfordshire county, is changing its name to King's Landing, the fictional capital of the Seven Kingdoms in "Game of Thrones," fictionally located on the east coast of Westeros, overlooking the fictional Blackwater Bay (according to Wikia).
