white walkers got london

London was briefly transformed into Westeros this week when the White Walkers from 'Game of Thrones' hit town.

First thing in the morning, The Night King was spotted travelling south on horseback from Hadrian's Wall (reportedly the location that inspired a setting in George RR Martin's series of source novels on which 'Game of Thrones' is based), and then was joined by a troop of White Walkers on his tour of London.

The group was spotted in some of the city's best-known tourist destinations, including Oxford Circus, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London.

Of course it was a publicity stunt in order to plug the latest series of 'Game of Thrones', which starts on Monday morning. Series seven is the penultimate in the epic fantasy series, and will only comprise seven episodes, making it shorter than the usual 10-episode series.

It starts at 2am on Monday morning on Sky Atlantic, though will be repeated at 9pm that evening. It will also be available on Now TV.
