‘Game of Thrones’ fans, pack your bags, Westeros is opening to tourists in Northern Ireland

Winter is coming for all “Game of Thrones” buffs. 

As fans (not so) patiently wait for the eighth and final season to premiere in 2019, HBO announced Monday that several iconic sets in Northern Ireland featured in the Emmy Award-winning series will be transformed into tourist attractions next year. 

“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,” said Jeff Peters, vice president of HBO licensing & retail.

The experience, dubbed the Game of Thrones Legacy attractions, may include the picturesque sets of Winterfell (home to the Starks), Castle Black (the headquarters of the Night’s Watch) and King’s Landing (the capital where Cersei Lannister and, more importantly, the Iron Throne reside).
