Game Of Thrones Exhibition, London

Sunday, 22 February 2015



Last week myself and Savannah went to the Game of Thrones Exhibition in the O2, London. I got the tickets for free through Sky as you had to have a Sky account to be able to attend the exhibition. After trying not to look at too many spoilers online I didn't really know what to expect. The tickets said allow at least an hour to walk around so I thought it would be quite big.

However you had to allow an hour for the queues for the 4D experience and White Walker photos. The actual exhibition itself was made up nearly entirely of just costumes, whilst these were interesting to look at it didn't take a massive amount of time. I couldn't be made into a White Walker as my hair is now dip dyed green so it blended in with the green screen too much, making my head look weird. The 4D experience that simulated the lift up to the top of the wall had an hour and a half wait, the simulator itself only lasted a few seconds and the reaction of the people on there wasn't amazing so we thought we'd skip that too. 

All in all we were quite disappointed, apart from getting to sit on the Iron Throne, we were in and back out within 20 minutes. As I said the costumes and the exhibition itself wasn't bad, there just wasn't enough of it. You could tell quite a few people had travelled quite far to see it and I feel like it could have been so much better.


Did you go to the exhibition? How did you find it?

    1. Haha, the bits that were there, were good, there just wasn't an awful lot of it. The throne was the best bit to be fair lol.

  2. I went to this too (I've also written a post about it) and I completely understand where you're coming from. The costumes were interesting, but they didn't take long to look round, I didn't do the 4d experience and I wan't fussed about being turned into a white walker either. We traveled from Nottingham for it and although it wasn't too far, I personally didn't find it worth the effort. Although, my boyfriend loved so I guess it's each to their own haha!

    1. I think a lot of people travelled quite far from what I could tell by the accents lol. I applied for the tickets because I knew I was going to be in London for something else that day so it wasn't so bad. I would have been annoyed if I had only travelled to London for the exhibition though. At least someone enjoyed themselves haha
