A Massive Game Of Thrones Studio Tour Will Open In Northern Ireland In February

You’ve heard of the spellbinding Harry Potter Studio Tour. Well, now you’ve got the chance to experience a Game of Thrones edition. And this would be the reason why we’re throwing a fair few covetous glances the way of Banbridge, Northern Ireland, where such an attraction has just been given the green light to open after the local borough council gave the project their blessing. It’ll open up on  February 4, 2022. What do we say to the god of death? Not today I really bloody want to go here!

Linen Mill Studios – which was used as a filming location for many of Game of Thrones’ iconic scenes – has been chosen as the site for the official Game of Thrones studio tour. It’s currently home to sets including Winterfell, Riverrun, and Pyke, all of which featured prominently in the unforgettable series, making it the logical choice to house the tour. When completed (and sadly, an opening date is still TBC), the studio tour is expected to attract some 600,000 visitors each year, and create 200 jobs for the area.

Should you mosey along when the Game of Thrones studio tour is completed, you’ll find authentic sets that you’ll be allowed to wander through, along with a treasure trove of costumes and props – riches that could rival even the famed wealth of the Lannisters.

I’d wager the usual set of interactive exhibitions and behind-the-scenes glimpses will also be in attendance, and though special events are further down the pipeline, I’d imagine a Red Wedding dinner experience could be quite the spectacle…

The Game of Thrones studio tour will be another glittering addition to the wealth of GoT experiences you can currently do in Northern Ireland. Fans make regular pilgrimages to the Dark Hedges in Ballymoney, and sets used for filming scenes at Castle Black and Kings Landing (Magheramorne Quarry and Titanic Studios, respectively) were opened up for public tours ahead of the show’s final season in 2019.

February 4, 2022 is the date for your diaries, and tickets are available to purchase now. If you’re planning a visit, I’d just make sure you’re not in the company of oathbreakers, traitors, or anyone called Frey – otherwise your visit might be a little more dramatic than you’d hoped…
