HBO To Open Doors To Westeros In Northern Ireland As It Eyes Major ‘Game Of Thrones’ Tourist Attractions

As the beloved HBO series comes to an end, fans will get the chance to get closer than ever before to the world they've explored for almost eight seasons on TV. Some sets being considered for the project include Castle Black, King's Landing, and Winterfell, with a tour of Linen Mill Studios incorporated as well.

A tentative targeted open date is now set for 2019.

Building on the success of past Game of Thrones live branded experiences, including the Touring Exhibition and the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience, HBO will open up the production archives and share them with the series' loyal fans.

Locations and sets in Northern Ireland where filming took place for Game Of Thrones are due to be opened to the public next year. Film sets, displays of costumes, props, weapons, set decorations, art files, models and other production materials are among the planned visitor attractions. In addition, the premium cabler plans to install digital content and interactive materials to showcase VFX used in "Game of Thrones".

"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", said HBO Vice President of Licensing and Retail Jeff Peters.

'The opportunity to celebrate Northern Ireland's pivotal role in the life and legacy of the show and share its culture, beauty and warmth is also a huge inspiration behind these legacy projects'.

HBO has announced it plans to celebrate the show's legacy by converting several filming locations into tourist attractions.

"While fans have observed the attractive landscapes, mountains and coastlines in the series, we have been thrilled they'll now have the chance to fully go through the charm of Northern Ireland and immerse themselves into the world of Westeros", said John McGrillen, CEO of Tourism NI.

In a statement obtained by Variety, the chief of Tourism NI said the project would be a global boon for the nation.

"We couldn't be more excited about the Game of Thrones Legacy project coming to Northern Ireland". These will open to the public sometime in 2019, possibly soon after the conclusion of the series.
