Game of Thrones’ filming locations in Northern Ireland to open as tourist attractions
HBO announced Monday it plans to convert some of the show’s most famous filming locations in Northern Ireland into tourist attractions, Variety reports.
The network is currently planning to open the Game of Thrones Legacy attraction next year, which will allow visitors to explore Winterfell, Castle Black and Kings Landing, along with a studio tour featuring props and materials from the show’s eight seasons.
HBO is working with Tourism NI to develop the attraction, which is said to be “on a scale and scope bigger than anything the public has ever seen,” according to the network.

Kit Harington talks Game of Thrones’ surprise Emmy win, reveals what he kept from set
The cast and crew of Game of Thrones descended on the 2018 Primetime Emmy Awards having won the top award of the night — Outstanding Drama Series — for the show’s past two seasons. But that didn’t mean they weren’t surprised when season 7 made it a trifecta. “It was exciting to be at the Emmy Awards again and to win, because we weren’t expecting to a win this time,” star Kit Harington (Jon Snow) told Men’s Journal. “We were away for a while, and I wasn’t even sure we’d get nominated, which in some ways sounds mad. But we missed a year and sometimes they’ll wait for a final season to give the awards. I thought Season 7 was brilliant, and I’m glad they recognized that.”
Harington also revealed that he engaged in a time-honored tradition among actors whose time on a set has come to an end: stealing props. So what did Harington keep as a memento of his eight seasons on Game of Thrones?
I actually didn’t take anything too crazy. I kept some of the armor that I use for Jon Snow’s outfit, like the wrist protectors I’ll wear in his costume. I thought those were pretty cool.
