Plans Reveal What £3.5bn Park Dubbed 'UK Disneyland' Will Look Like

Plans Reveal What £3.5bn Park Dubbed 'UK Disneyland' Will Look Like

A new theme park dubbed the UK's answer to Disneyland has now reached crucial public consultation stages, with amazing plans showing what it will look like.

Due to open in four years, the £3.5 billion site London Resort promises to be one of the 'largest construction projects across Europe', having been billed as the biggest theme park on the continent to be built from the ground up since Disneyland Paris in 1992.

Located just 17 minutes by train from St Pancras Station in Swanscombe, Kent, the build will see seven million square metres of land on the banks of the River Thames transformed into 'one of the largest, immersive experience centres in the world'.

After signing a deal with Paramount Studios, it will even feature rides based on Paramount films and shows from the BBC and ITV.

"When complete, it will be three times larger than any other park in the UK," the resort's website says.

"Two theme parks and a resort water park will be set over 535 acres, the equivalent of 136 Wembley Stadiums. A bespoke entertainment district, including the provision of 3,500 hotel rooms, will be devoted to a full-suite of hospitality experiences. There will be something for every generation and food and drink for every taste.

"But it's the rides and the experiences which will take The London Resort to another level. Brands from across literature, television, music, film and entertainment, are being hand-picked to create unique experiences never previously imagined."

Following the public consultation, plans will be submitted for planning permission later this year - before construction on the 535 acre site hopefully kicking off next year so that the first park can open in 2024, before this is followed with the second in 2029.

Chief Executive of the project PY Gerbeau said: "This is a significant step in transforming an amazing and ambitious dream into reality.

"We obviously can't hold a public consultation in the normal way - but we will make sure we reach out to local residents and businesses as well as the wider community and stakeholders.

"We are talking to Government about how we will be using digital technology, websites, video conferences and online Question and Answer Sessions."

The plans show how the resort will be separated into seven themed zones: The Jungle, The Woods, The Kingdom, The Studio, The Isles, Starport and High Street.

The site, which will be the equivalent of 136 Wembley Stadiums, is also expected to house 70 percent of its attractions undercover, ensuring the Great British weather won't get in the way of anyone's fun.
