The set of ‘Game of Thrones’ will soon be a tourist attraction
Locations in Northern Ireland used to film Game of Thrones will soon be open to the public for fans to explore
Although many are sad that HBO’s Game of Thrones is coming to an end, many are happy to hear that several of the locations featured in the show will soon be opened to the public as a tourist attraction. Tours of sets for Winterfell, Castle Black, and Kings Landing are just but a few of the locations in Northern Ireland that will become available for exploration as early as next year. HBO promises that the new Legacy attractions will be “on a scale and scope bigger than anything the public has ever seen.”
Jeff Peters, HBO’s VP of licensing and retail says that “HBO is thrilled to celebrate the work of the ‘Game of Thrones’ creative team and crew by preserving these locations and inviting fans to visit Northern Ireland and explore Westeros in person.” And there will of course be a variety of costumes, props, weapons, models and other elements featured in the show available on site too. John McGrillen, CEO of Tourism is saying that the new attraction is a “game-changer for Northern Ireland on the global tourism level.”
