‘Game of Thrones’ Themed Attraction To Open In UK
It seems that die-hard “Game of Thrones” fans from all around the world will get to experience the fictional world of Westeros and Essos, through an all new “GoT” themed attraction.
The new attraction, which was planned in 2019, received the nod from the local authorities only this month, and will reportedly be set in the Linen Mill Studios in Banbridge, Northern Ireland, with an estimated budget of £24 million.
According to reports, fans will get access to iconic sets like the Map Room, Dragonstone’s Throne Room, Castle Black’s Mess Room, Cersei’s Courtyard in King’s Landing, and also the fort at Winterfell. It is very well known that major portion of the series was shot in the Linen Mill Studios.
“Some of the most iconic scenes from Game of Thrones were filmed at Linen Mill Studios. 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,” Jeff Peters, HBO vice president of licensing and retail, said in an interview, as reported by Indian Express.
Along with the tour of iconic sets, the attraction will also feature a tour of the costumes and props and a visit to the makeup and prosthetics shop.
Although it has been more than a year, since the series bid its goodbye, fans are constantly looking for some new information, including sequels, prequels and new books from author George RR Martin. The news of the new attraction has been met with joy of fans. The series has been the inspiration for many restaurants, pubs, cafes and many destination hotels too.
As of now, there is no official opening date for the new “GoT” themed attraction, as the project is still in the very early stages. However, a public announcement is expected to happen within this year.
