Watch: Final Game of Thrones scenes added to Ulster Museum tapestry

The final section of the Game of Thrones tapestry has been unveiled at the Ulster Museum in Belfast.

The season finale for series seven of the HBO show - titled The Dragon and The Wolf - aired earlier this month.

Among parts of the episode depicted on the huge tapestry are a captured Wight being brought before the Lannister’s at the Dragon Pits and Jon Snow's true parentage finally being confirmed.

Meanwhile the dramatic scenes at Winterfell are also included as Sansa surprises Littlefinger with an a charge of treason.

This final section of the tapestry marks the culmination of Tourism Ireland’s 2017 Game of Thrones campaign, which has been promoting Northern Ireland to millions of the show’s fans worldwide since season seven began in July.

The campaign was rolled out across 12 different markets – including Great Britain, the United States, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, India and the UAE.

The Bayeux-style tapestry at the Ulster Museum depicts important scenes from the hit fantasy series - complete with blood red weddings, golden Lannister hair, emerald green wildfire, cold blue White Walkers and jet black crows.

As season 7 unfolded, new sections of the installation were revealed each week in the build-up to the next episode, capturing key events from the previous week.

The hand-embroidered artwork was woven using material from Thomas Ferguson Irish Linen in Banbridge.

Game of Thrones is mostly filmed in Northern Ireland and has boosted tourism numbers here since the show aired in 2011.
