Game of Thrones real-life in Northern Ireland, a dream soon possible.
Winterfell, Castle Black, Kings Landing, so many places that will be open to visitors as soon as the series is over. HBO has announced their desire to open the doors to certain settings to as many visitors as possible. As yet, no official date, even if the channel hinted at 2019. These locations will boost tourism in Northern Ireland will be in keeping with the line of expositions and The Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience already put in place by the American broadcaster.
Even though you can already follow in the footsteps of the heroes at sites such as San Juan de Gaztelugatxe alias Dragonstone, Medina Gate alias the door to Port-Réal and Essaouira alias Astapor, the novelty will be access to the actual standing sets, where production material, accessories, costumes and arms will be on display.
This project aims to celebrate Northern Ireland which played a real key role in the series but also “to share its culture, its beauty and its warm welcome” according to Jeff Peters, vice-president of licensing and distribution at HBO.
