Even though Game of Thrones has finished filming, HBO isn’t going to tear down all the sets. Instead, it’s going to capitalize on fans who miss the show and turn some of the filming locations into tourist attractions.

Deadline reports HBO will turn several locations in Northern Ireland into places Game of Thrones fans can visit. There will be Winterfell, which is actually Castle Ward in County Down, and Castle Black, which is actually a quarry in Magheramorne.

There will also be tours of King’s Landing, which is filmed in part near Armoy. Other parts of King’s Landing are filmed in Dubrovnik, Croatia, which already sees its fair share of Game of Thrones tourists. It’s not exactly clear where the King’s Landing tourist attraction will be, but a popular location in Northern Ireland is the Dark Hedges, where Arya escapes from King’s Landing in the second season of the show.

Each location will feature sets, costumes, props, and other materials from filming Game of Thrones. There will also be a studio tour of Linen Mill Studios, which may feature interactive exhibitions about the visual effects used on the show, Variety reports. The entire project is being called Game of Thrones Legacy.

The tourist attractions are set to open in 2019, which is likely also the year the final episodes of Game of Thrones will hit television screens.
