The exhibition will return to the city from 11-15 June, following a successful display last year.

This year's exhibition will take place at The Waterfront Hall, with thousands of fans expected to arrive at the venue to get the Westeros experience.

Marie-Therese O'Neill, from the Northern Ireland Tourist Board, said: "We are delighted to announce that tickets to this exciting exhibition which gives fans around the country a unique insight into the show, are free and will go on release via www.waterfront.co.uk on 8 May at 9am.

"The exhibition will focus on the storyline and events of Season 3 but there will be a few surprises from the fourth season, bringing the action right up-to-date."

The latest display will also feature over 100 original artefacts, including costumes, weapons, armour, set miniatures, storyboards and, of course, model dragons.

Fans will also get the chance to explore Kings Landing, sit on the coveted Iron Throne and 'climb the wall' at the new Oculus Rift interactive area.

The hugely successful fantasy series is filmed in Northern Ireland, with various locations, including the Cushendun Caves, Murlough Bay, Ballintoy Harbour, and Larrybane, featuring on screen.

Ms O' Neill continued: "Game of Thrones has been hugely successful for HBO but also for Northern Ireland as our stunning mountains, forests, lakes and countryside, now familiar to millions of people around the world, have helped to create the magical backdrop that much of the show's action is filmed against."

The series is based on George R.R. Martin's best-selling books and is one of several high profile programmes and films that have been shot in Northern Ireland in recent years.

The Game of Thrones Exhibition will visit numerous locations around the world including New York, Mexico, Austin, Rio de Janeiro, Oslo, Toronto, Vancouver and Belfast.
