Game of Thrones UK exhibition reveals first look at what fans can expect

Game of Thrones is coming back to our screens this April for its final season, but there’s an easy way fans can get their fix when it’s over.

That’s because HBO is launching a Game of Thrones Studio Tour in Northern Ireland, a permanent exhibition which will feature sets, props, costumes and more behind-the-scenes tidbits of the hit TV show.

Now, HBO has offered a sneak peek at just what fans can expect from the exhibition at Linen Mill Studios, Banbridge, by releasing a series of artists’ renderings of what it will look like.

It promises a “deeply immersive and sensory experience”, and judging by the preview it’s going to feel like you really have stepped into the Seven Kingdoms.

Without the real threat of White Walkers and dragons, of course. (Although we’re hoping these will feature too!)

Basically, you’re going to feel like you really have stepped into the Seven Kingdoms.

Sets will include Dragonstone’s Throne Room and Map Room, Castle Black’s Mess Room, Cersei’s Courtyard in King’s Landing, and even inside Winterfell itself.

Visitors will be able to walk around the sets and get up close to the real props, costumes and weapons used throughout the series, as well as learning all the secrets of how special effects were created for iconic scenes.

The Dragonstone Throne Room

Oh, and there’ll be an ‘interactive Costume Department station’ which has us hoping you can dress as all of your favourite characters, as well as displays revealing make-up and prosthetics secrets, and plenty more from the Production Design and the Art Department including the Armoury!

The map room in Dragonstone

There will also be a first-of-its-kind collection of displays highlighting the creative works of the Production Design and the Art Department.

There’ll be plenty to explore in the new 110,000 sq ft interactive experience, which is set to open to the public in spring 2020.

Tickets haven’t gone on sale yet but you can keep an eye out on the Linen Mill Studios website for updates.

Northern Ireland makes for a fitting location too. After all, it actually served as one of the Game of Thrones filming locations!

Get close to the costumes and props

Jeff Peters, vice president, licensing & retail, HBO, said: “It is our sincere pleasure to announce the first attraction from the Game of Thrones Legacy project in Northern Ireland. 

“Some of the most iconic scenes from Game of Thrones were filmed at Linen Mill Studios and 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.”
