Northern Ireland Game of Thrones studio tour to open Westeros to the public in 2020

The first attraction from the Game of Thrones Legacy project in Northern Ireland is due to open to visitors in spring 2020.

The Game of Thrones Studio Tour at Linen Mill Studios in Banbridge, Co Down will comprise of sets, original props, costumes and other behind-the-scenes items from the hit HBO series and will drop fans in the very heart of the Seven Kingdoms.

Guests can experience an up-close and personal look at a wide selection of items pulled straight from the screen and have the opportunity to walk through authentic set pieces from some of the show’s most iconic scenes.

In collaboration with HBO Licensing and Retail, Linen Mill Studios are designing and building the new 110,000-square-foot interactive experience alongside a world-class creative team to bring the environments of both Westeros and Essos to life in a new format.

Last year HBO announced that a number of locations and sets used to film Game Of Thrones in Northern Ireland would be opened to the public to celebrate the show’s legacy.

Chief executive of Northern Ireland Screen Richard Williams said: “Northern Ireland is very proud to host the epic adventure that is the production of Game of Thrones. Almost from the start fans of the show from near and far along with those that are just culturally curious have sought out and enjoyed visiting the public locations featured in the show.

"It's now really exciting that Linen Mill Studios, one of the film studios used by Game of Thrones from the start, is soon to become open to the public as a Game of Thrones visitor experience. It is brilliant that this visitor experience is being built and developed on top of the genuine film studio where many of the most iconic scenes were filmed.”
