The blockbuster TV series is over but Game of Thrones fans can continue to experience the Seven Kingdoms as a new HBO-backed Game of Thrones Studio Tour opens in Northern Ireland.

Located at one of the original filming locations at Linen Mill Studios in Banbridge (midway between Belfast and Dublin), Game of Thrones Studio Tour opened on February 4.

Taking cues from the Warner Bros. Studio Tour of London - The Making of Harry Potter, the Linen Mill Studios tour is a completely immersive experience that evokes the show's epic scale to bring Westeros to life.

The Linen Mill Studios tour includes fully-dressed sets, costumes, imagery and original props and weaponry from the Game of Thrones universe—including King's Landing, Braavos, Dorne and Dragonfell—which have been rebuilt and restored by the same construction crews and artists who worked on the Emmy award-winning show. 

Julain Moon, head of EAMA Warner Bros. Consumer Products said: “What an incredible honour to be opening the doors today to the first-ever Game of Thrones Studio Tour. This marks a first for Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment to launch a world-class attraction in Northern Ireland where fans can explore, up close and personal, a vast array of authentic sets, as well as a comprehensive collection of costumes, props, set pieces, and so much more.”
