A new £24m Game of Thrones-themed attraction will be opening in the UK.

Fans of the hit HBO series will be able to fully immerse themselves in its world, visiting iconic sets including the Map Room, Dragonstone’s Throne Room, Castle Black’s Mess Room, Cersei’s Courtyard in King’s Landing, and the famous Winterfell.

Plans for the forthcoming studio tour were announced in 2019, however, the project was only given the green light by local authorities this month.

The highly anticipated attraction will be set inside the Linen Mill Studios in Banbridge, Northern Ireland.

Speaking to Northern Ireland Screen last year, Jeff Peters, HBO vice president of licensing and retail, said: “Some of the most iconic scenes from Game of Thrones were filmed at Linen Mill Studios.”

He added: “Our fans will soon have an opportunity to visit and see the work of the show’s incredible crew in the museum setting it deserves.”

As well as iconic sets, the tour will also feature costumes and props from the series and guests will be able to visit the “makeup and prosthetics shop”.

There will also be a restaurant “designed to replicate the studio catering experience”.
