HBO to launch Game of Thrones legacy experiences in Northern Ireland
As Game of Thrones finishes filming after a decade in Northern Ireland, HBO is celebrating the show’s legacy in the region by converting several filming locations into tourist attractions.
For the first time ever, fans of the Emmy-winning series will have the unique opportunity to visit iconic sets from the show and immerse themselves in the world of Westeros.
Building on the success of past Game of Thrones live branded experiences, including the Touring Exhibition and Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience, HBO will open up the production archives and share them with the series’ loyal fans.
The Game of Thrones Legacy attractions will offer the first opportunity for the public to set foot inside some of the most iconic locations from the series and behind the camera lens to see how the world’s biggest TV show was made.
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.The visitor experience will be enhanced by state-of-the-art digital content and interactive materials which will showcase some of the digital wizardry the series is known for.
Jeff Peters, vice president, Licensing and Retail, HBO, said: “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.
“We look forward to opening the gates and sharing the excitement of stepping inside these amazing sets with Game of Thronesfans from around the world. 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.”
