Linen Mill Studios. That was the home of a little show called Game of Thrones for several years. And in that time, it was never publicly available for visitors to tour to see the majestic, gorgeous sets of the Emmy-winning series. But today, December 1, the wall is coming down!
Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment has just announced the Game of Thrones Studio Tour at Linen Mill Studios in Banbridge, Northern Ireland! Starting February 2021, guests will be able to view some of the most iconic sets in the history of television, from the halls of Winterfell, to Castle Black, to King’s Landing. The immersive experience will treat guests to an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at how this unparalleled achievement in television was brought to life, from the visual effects, to the costumes and make up.

Here is the official press release:
The brand new 110,000-square-foot interactive experience will allow fans to explore a vast array of original sets, costumes, props and set pieces, with the aim of bringing visitors closer to the Seven Kingdoms than ever before. Fans can step inside the iconic Great Hall at Winterfell where Jon Snow was proclaimed the “King in the North,” see Daenerys Targaryen’s imposing Dragonstone throne, delve into the incredible props, weaponry and visual effects of Game of Thrones and learn more about the skills and craftmanship that helped bring the show to life on screen. The immersive experience brings Westeros to life and will evoke the show’s epic scale — from King’s Landing, Winterfell, Dragonstone, The Wall and the lands beyond.
Peter van Roden, Senior Vice President of Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment, said: “We’re incredibly excited to be opening the doors to the first-ever Game of Thrones Studio Tour at Linen Mill Studios. Knowing you are in the very same spot where some of the series’ most memorable moments were filmed is an incredible feeling and we know fans of the franchise will feel the same when they see the rich detail in the sets, costumes and props up close and personal.”

This incredible and unique experience is set to bring the making of the show to life like never before and we look forward with much excitement to welcoming fans and visitors from near and far as we throw open the Studio Tour doors and start a new chapter in the Game of Thrones story here in Northern Ireland. After many years as a closed and ‘off limits’ film studio, it is now time for fans from across the world to step inside the Seven Kingdoms and make their own personal journey through the world of Westeros at Linen Mill Studios.”
Niall Gibbons, Chief Executive of Tourism Ireland, said:
“We are really excited about the opening of Game of Thrones Studio Tour at Linen Mill Studios – which will give fans of the show everywhere an extra special reason to book a trip to Northern Ireland in 2022 and beyond. Over the past decade, Northern Ireland has welcomed fans from around the globe to the ‘real-world Westeros’ – home to the stunning landscapes, coastlines and mountains that have featured in some of the show’s most memorable scenes. Within easy reach of Dublin and Belfast, the new Game of Thrones Studio Tour will give fans a fantastic opportunity to go behind the scenes and be immersed in the sets, props and costumes used in the series. It will bring the Seven Kingdoms vividly to life, in the place where it all began.”
