A new Game of Thrones tour will let fans visit some of the show’s iconic sets in Northern Ireland for the first time.
As filming draws to a close on the show’s eighth and final season, some of the show’s most recognisable locations near Belfast will be made accessible – allowing fans to experience the hit fantasy show in real life.
“The Game of Thrones Legacy attractions will be on a scale and scope bigger than anything the public has ever seen”, HBO confirmed in a statement. “Each site will feature not only the breathtaking sets, but will also exhibit displays of costumes, props, weapons, set decorations, art files, models, and other production materials.”

They continued: “The visitor experience will be enhanced by state-of-the-art digital content and interactive materials which will showcase some of the digital wizardry the series is known for.”
HBO is also considering the possibility of allowing fans to visit the standing sets that were created for iconic settings such as King’s Landing and Castle Black.
It’s yet to be announced when the attraction will officially open.
Meanwhile, Game of Thrones creator George RR Martin recently revealed how the show could’ve ran for 13 seasons successively.
Speaking to Variety at the Emmy’s, the fantasy author made the honest admission when asked why the show will be coming to an end next year.
“I don’t know, ask David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] when they come through,” Martin said. “We could have gone to 11, 12, 13 seasons. But I guess they wanted a life.”
