New £24 Million Game Of Thrones Attraction Is Coming To The UK

A new £24 million ($32m) Game of Thrones attraction is set to come to the UK and it looks pretty bloody incredible.

Fans of the show will be able to feel like they're strolling through the Seven Kingdoms with sets including Winterfell, Cersei's Courtyard in King's Landing and Dragonstone castle's Throne Room.

The attraction, which doesn't yet have a planned opening date, has just been given the green light by local authorities, meaning work can get underway pretty sharpish.

Set inside the Linen Mill Studios in Banbridge, in Northern Ireland, the HBO Game of Thrones Studio Tour will feature costumes and props from the show and promises a 'deeply immersive and sensory experience'.

Guests will be able to walk around, get up close to weapons and costumes worn on the show as well as be able to visit the 'make up and prosthetics shop'.

They'll even be treated to some behind-the-scenes secrets that reveal the special effects and tricks used during filming. Sounds good, eh?

Artist impressions of the attraction show give an idea to how it'll look once it's open - and it seems as though it won't disappoint GoT fans.

"We are committed to giving fans the opportunity to experience firsthand the most comprehensive selection of iconic elements from the show available anywhere in the world."
