FANS of the world’s biggest TV show have been given another new way to explore the true `Home of Thrones', with the launch of a new visitor trail in Belfast.

To coincide with each episode in the final season of Game of Thrones, a series of stained glass windows were unveiled in the city.

The windows are dotted along a 1.8 mile long trail which leads from city hall to the banks of the River Lagan and all the way to Titanic Studios where much of the hit show was filmed.

Images of each window are accompanied by text outlining the stories associated with each image.

The Tourism NI guide also tells the story behind the meticulous creation of the windows themselves, by local artists.

Each of the windows depicts images from the most popular, dramatic and talked-about scenes in the entire Game of Thrones series.

Judith Webb, Tourism NI’s screen tourism specialist, said it was hoped the new guide would bring "to life the story of Northern Ireland’s unique relationship with the show".

The new guide is available from Visit Belfast and visitor information centres across Northern Ireland.
