Video: Game of Thrones' plot recreated in epic tapestry unveiled at Ulster Museum


A tapestry which tells the story of Game of Thrones has been unveiled at the Ulster Museum in Belfast.

Tourism Ireland revealed the new installation as part of a new campaign to entice more Game of Thrones fans to Northern Ireland.

The 66metre long tapestry depicts scenes from the hit HBO series and will be added to in the coming weeks as series seven airs on Sky Atlantic.

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

The tapestry was unveiled at the Ulster Museum ahead of the season seven premiere on Monday night in the UK. It will be opened to the public from Saturday, July 22.

Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said, “We are delighted to continue our partnership with HBO for the fourth year running, to highlight Northern Ireland – through the exciting events of Game of Thrones – on the global stage.

"TV and film are recognised as strong influencers on travellers everywhere and the stellar popularity of Game of Thrones is a fantastic opportunity for us to promote Northern Ireland to a huge audience of potential visitors.

Our specially created Game of Thrones tapestry is another truly innovative way to showcase the destination – creating a lasting legacy and a new visitor attraction to enhance the Game of Thrones experience here for fans when they visit.”
