New £24m Game of Thrones attraction to open in the UK where guests can walk through King's Landing and Winterfell

GAME of Thrones fans left wanting something new following the ending of the series can celebrate as a new attraction based on the TV show is set to open in the UK.

Proposals for the £24m tourist attraction have been accepted by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council in Northern Ireland.

Based on the iconic book series and TV show, fans of Game of Thrones will be able to learn something new about the universe.

Located at Linen Mill Studios in Banbridge, the new attraction will be a "deeply immersive and sensory experience" with sets and props, as well as behind the scenes of some of the special affects.

Sets will include the iconic Winterfell, as well as Cersei’s Courtyard in King’s Landing, Dragonstone’s Throne Room and Map Room and Castle Black’s Mess Room.

Guests will be able to walk through the film locations with daily tours, started off by a "pre-show experience" before being taken around the attraction.

Also on-site will be a cafe, designed to look like the film studios with mobile catering vans offering food and drink.

It isn't just costumes and props available to guests – pop up events and screenings are also planned to make use of the space.

According to local media, the designs explain: "The hub is sized to allow sufficient space for visitors to wait, circulate to other spaces and facilities and dining.

"The space will have seating and café seating to allow flexibility of use for pop-up events, exhibitions, screenings or other such events.

“Other elements and functions accessed directly from the hub space will include visitor toilets and baby change, a retail space, the tour entrance and a ‘grab and go’ style café."

The attraction will be similar to the Warner Bros Studio Harry Potter Tour, currently in London, which includes sets, costumes and pop up events.

It isn't clear how much tickets will cost or when the new attraction will open.

While the Game of Thrones series ended last year, plans for a prequel are currently in process.

Set 300 years before the main show, the 10-episode House of Dragons season will track the dynasty in keeping with the events laid out in George RR Martin's Fire & Blood novel.

If you can't quite wait, you can head to Northern Ireland for a Game of Thrones inspired holiday where many of the scenes were filmed.
