Game of Thrones will end with Season 8, but that doesn't mean your time in Westeros is through. Soon, HBO will offer access to the show's filming locations so that fans can visit places like King's Landing IRL. Ready to confront the horrid place Margaery and friends succumbed to Cersei's wildfire stash? Are you emotionally prepared enough to see the tower that housed Jon Snow's mom as she gave birth? Stoked to travel to Dragonstone, the island of Daenerys's legacy? Well, maybe not all of these places will be available to visit, but you will be able to relive the show even after it has concluded.
According to the show's official site, the network will focus on filming locations in Northern Ireland that will be "on a scale and scope bigger than anything the public has ever seen." These will include Winterfell, Castle Black, King's Landing, and more. Each attraction will feature costumes, decorations from the sets, models, and other props. There will also be access to Linen Mill Studios, which will exhibit various materials from the series. In other words, fans will feel like they've stepped right into the show. While HBO is still developing plans for the attractions, they're set to be called Game of Thrones Legacy.
"HBO is thrilled to celebrate the work of the Game of Thrones creative team and crew by preserving these locations and inviting fans to visit Northern Ireland and explore Westeros in person," Jeff Peters, the network's vice president of licensing and retail, said in a statement. "The opportunity to celebrate Northern Ireland’s pivotal role in the life and legacy of the show and share its culture, beauty and warmth is also a huge inspiration behind these Legacy projects."
If you're a mega fan, chances are you've already visited some of the show's sets, like the one in Dubrovnik. In fact, Traveller reports over 800,000 tourists have visited the Croatian city since early 2018.
Still, there's plenty to see, and HBO is ensuring fans can experience it all.
Game of Thrones Legacy is set to open some time in 2019.
