The famous throne from the famous TV series will be making a publicity appearance in London this summer to mark the 10th anniversary of the TV show.

The Iron Throne will be installed inside Leicester Square garden, to the west of the central fountain next to the Charlie Chaplin statue.

The indicative photos from the planning application are slightly generous in what the set-up will look like, as the side of the Iron Throne is in fact going to be clamped to the park bench to stop people walking off with it.

From the planning application

The throne is due to be unveiled on a date to be confirmed in June, having presumably missed the April anniversary due to you know what.

With any luck, it’ll be sanitised between people sitting on it by some dragon fire.

It’s all a publicity stunt for the release of each season of the series in 4K Ultra HD format, which is available to buy as a boxed set, but included season 8. Soon you can buy just seasons 1-7.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    On a side note the introduction of bronze statues of Film stars around the square has been such a positive addition, hopefully they will be sticking around!
