Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment has released a first look at authentic sets that are part of its Game of Thrones Studio Tour at Linen Mill Studios in Banbridge, Northern Ireland. The destination attraction will open February 4, 2022. Tickets, which must be purchased in advance of visits, are now available to buy at this official website.
In a release, chief executive of tourism for Ireland Niall Gibbons, said: “Over the past decade, Northern Ireland has welcomed fans from around the globe to the ‘real-world Westeros’–home to the stunning landscapes, coastlines, and mountains that have featured in some of the show’s most memorable scenes… the new Game of Thrones Studio Tour will give fans a fantastic opportunity to go behind the scenes and be immersed in the sets, props and costumes used in the series. It will bring the Seven Kingdoms vividly to life, in the place where it all began.” Many of the fantasy show’s rural locations were filmed in Northern Ireland, including the Kings Road, the Iron Islands, and Winterfell.

Martin was unhappy with the original series’ final three seasons.
