Original Kings Langley village sign to be restored after 'Kings Landing' Game of Thrones promotion stunt
Kings Langley will have its village sign restored on Sunday after a week of being Kings Landing.
The village temporarily changed its name for a week in honour of Game of Thrones, as part of a promotion stunt for the television series.
The temporary sign declared the village was: "King’s Landing, Capital of the Seven Kingdoms" but also reminded motorists to "please drive carefully".
As well as being featured on the main village sign, local businesses were also encouraged to get into the Game Of Thrones spirit in a bid to boost tourism - while fans took to social media to tweet photos of themselves at the sign, using the hashtag #KingsLandingUK.
Dalling & co in High Street made Game of Thrones inspired cupcakes to celebrate which "flew off the shelf".
Jeff Folkinsh has owned the shop with his wife Claire Carpenter for five years.
He said: "Having the sign here has been lovely. Really nice.
"We will miss the sign when it is gone, it has been a fun thing to have here - and meant we are in the news around the world.
"My daughter lives in Boston and heard about it.
"The council has also been great - they have left businesses to get on with it and get involved if they want or not.
"Kings Langley is a really lovely village, there is a nice buzz here with people getting involved in community events. In the five years we have been here, it has transformed."
The shop is holding a banquet on Saturday based in the medieval town Westeros. People need to book their places by getting in touch with the delicatessen directly.
