With filming for the famous Game of Thrones franchise wrapped up, withdrawal from the series is beginning to set in. While the final episodes are set to air in early 2019, HBO will let the fan-fair continue, turning some of the most iconic locations into tourist destinations around Northern Ireland.
From Winterfell Tower (which is known as Castle Ward in County Down), and Castle Black (a quarry in Magheramorne) fans will experience the television show in real-life. There will be tours of Kings Landing near Armoy as well as Dark Hedges where Arya escapes from King’s Landing in the second season of the show.
Additionally each location will offer and feature sets, costumes, props and other materials from the filming of Game of Thrones. Further more, there will be a studio tour of Linen Mill Studios, which is suggested to feature interactive exhibitions playing on the visual effects of the show.
According to Variety, the tourist attractions are expected to be unveiled in 2019, potentially in line with the final episodes of the last season.
