Game of Thrones Fans Can Visit Westeros in Northern Ireland With New Locations Tour
The final season of Game of Thrones is nearly upon us, so die-hard fans might as well go all out to commemorate it. No, we don't mean get GoT tattoos like the cast is doing (unless you really want to); we were thinking more along the lines of a visit to Westeros.
HBO and Tourism Northern Ireland have teamed up to open some of the hit show's most recognizable locations in and around Belfast to the public as tourist attractions, letting fans explore some of the staple settings, and featuring exhibitions of props, costumes, weapons, and other production materials used on set.
“The Game of Thrones Legacy attractions will be on a scale and scope bigger than anything the public has ever seen," HBO said 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.”
Possible sites to be included are Winterfell, the Night's Watch headquarters, Castle Black, and King's Landing.
Though GoT is coming to an end, it's obvious that there's much more to be explored in Westeros (even George RR Martin said so at the Emmys). Bring on more tours—and more TV shows!
