The latest seasonal costume exhibit at the Game of Thrones Studio Tour in Northern Island, an authentic, world-class attraction that invites visitors of all ages to peek behind the camera to learn the show’s secrets, is set to take fans on a nostalgic journey.
Winter Is Coming: A Stark Family Reunion takes us all the way back to the show’s very first episode back in 2011, featuring the scene in the courtyard of Winterfell when Ned Stark, Catelyn Stark, and their children met with King Robert Baratheon and his wife Cersei.
While the autumnal-themed display focuses on the Lord and Lady of Winterfell, Robb, Sansa, Arya, Bran, and Rickon (with costumes designed by Michele Clapton), the White Wolf hasn’t been forgotten. When the Studio Tour’s display transforms in preparation for the winter season, Jon Snow’s first costume will be added to the exhibit as well.
Visitors can peruse a variety of Stark artefacts beyond the new family costume exhibit, including the authentic Winterfell Great Hall, Bran’s Chamber, The Crypts sets, Sansa’s coronation gown, Bran’s wheelchair, and iconic weaponry such as Arya’s Needle sword, Jon Snow’s Longclaw, and the Catspaw Dagger.
Based on the book series by George R.R. Martin, the fantasy drama Game of Thrones ran for eight seasons, detailing the epic, gruesome, and emotional battle for the Iron Throne of Westeros. The television adaptation took its final bow in 2019, but the Game of Thrones universe continues to expand with spin-offs, the first being House of the Dragon, which will return for a second season.
