Game of Thrones' Iron Throne will be unveiled as a statue to celebrate 10 years since the show aired in the UK as part of the Scenes in the Square trail.

The Iron Throne from Game of Thrones is set to be brought to London's Leicester Square.

The iconic seat from the hit HBO series will be unveiled as a statue to celebrate 10 years since the show first aired on UK screens.

The Iron Throne will be part of the Scenes in the Square trail and will join nine entertainment icons from the past 100 years, first unveiled in late February 2020.

Game of Thrones will be the first TV show celebrated on the trail, which includes the likes of Harry Potter, Laurel & Hardy, Bugs Bunny, Gene Kelly in Singin’ in the Rain, Mary Poppins, Mr Bean, Paddington and iconic DC superheroes Batman and Wonder Woman.

Additional plots in Leicester Square will see new film and entertainment statues take up temporary residence over the next two years, with organisers promising many much-loved and diverse movie icons to come.

Meanwhile, the new 4K ultra HD release of all individual seasons of GOT is available, while the highly anticipated Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon is coming in 2022.
