Westeros To Come To Life When Northern Ireland Opens ‘Game of Thrones’ Tourist Attractions
Game of Thrones fans rejoice. As the series wraps up filming, you will be able to visit the set locations in Northern Ireland where your favorite Westeros characters have come to life.
Winter Is Coming, And So Is A Tourist Attraction
HBO will convert standing sets for popular story locations such as Castle Black, Kings Landing, and Winterfell into tourist attractions in Northern Ireland. While extreme Game of Thrones fans have been able to visit the show’s iconic filming locations in Belfast and Dubrovnik before, the Game of Thrones Legacy experience will take viewers behind the scenes with costumes, props, weapons, and concept art from the shows eight seasons.
According to the network, the attractions will be “on a scale and scope bigger than anything the public has ever seen.”
What You Can Expect Behind The Gates
Each film site will include exclusive set decorations, art files, models and other production materials. There will also be digital interactive sets for visitors to feel as though they are a part of the game.
Jeff Peters, Vice President of Licensing and Retail for HBO states, “We look forward to opening the gates and sharing the excitement of stepping inside these amazing sets with Game of Thrones fans from around the world. The opportunity to celebrate Northern Ireland’s pivotal role in the life and legacy of the show and share its culture, beauty, and warmth is also a huge inspiration behind these legacy projects.”
A Major Boost For Northern Ireland
HBO has partnered with Tourism NI, for the Game of Thrones Legacy Experience. John McGrillen, CEO of Tourism NI, called the Game of Thrones Legacy project a game-changer for Northern Ireland on the global tourism level. In a statement, McGrillen shares, “While fans have seen the stunning landscapes, coastlines, and mountains in the series, we are thrilled they will now have the opportunity to fully experience the charm of Northern Ireland and immerse themselves into the world of Westeros.”
