£3.2 billion ‘Disneyland-style’ resort bigger than Olympic park could open in Britain in six years

Editor 24
Found 4th Aug 2017
The 3.2 billion theme park, would be the first of its kind in the UK and would feature Europe's largest indoor water park, roller coasters, theatres, live music venues, cinemas, restaurants and hotels.



London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH), the group behind the multi-billion pound development, recently brought in a group of senior staff to push forward with the project.

The deal was initially agreed in partnership with Hollywood studio Paramount Pictures to develop the site.

But the film giant parted ways with the developers, despite plans for rides themed around some of the Hollywood favourites including Transformers and Mission Impossible.

A public consultation will be launched in early 2018 before the development consent order is submitted later that year.

You can take a look at the development plans HERE

More clutter in London. Just what's needed.
Let's hope it's indoors then otherwise it'll be a miserable place for 10 months of the year.

Don't hold your breath. Paramount found a site in Spain which was 'perfectly suited to house such a project' ..... over 7 years ago. The locals still await any investment, and the creation of 20,000 jobs. 'tumbit.com/top…tml

Paramount are nothing to do with this any more, they decided to leave the project.

This was announced 5 years ago and they quit earlier this year.

Exactly my point - thank you for reinforcing it.
They said one was scheduled for Essex but heard nothing since. We could do with disneyland in the UK that is easily accessible by public transport.
This was supposed to have been open for 2016/17/18......

cant see it happening at all. Paramount pulled out losing a major franchises at the same time (Star Trek etc)

Honestly can't see this happenijg

Easily accessible public transport - not what it co$t$ nope, not in the UK....ah them Tories, selling everything off to their mates at more cost per taxpayer and post tax income. Push up the price of everything and everyone's a winner. On the opposite side Labour, who can't run a thing but overrun, yet outsource - but at least that overrun is usually public except Blue Labour education, your GP surgery etc etc that was all privatised. Illusion Park is what's needed, ye all might open your eyes that both parties have had you at the fare ground for decades! lol!!


At least Scotland and N.I (almost) have a democratic choice of some local substance.

Enjoy your fair park London, A Crossrail extension will pay for the transport costs to a private venue, or just start Crossrail 3 - a Disneyland public funded express line from that magic money tree.

Labour & Cons have passed a mismanaged baton for decades, it's a monopoly. Open yer eyes people, but do enjoy Disneyland LOL
Such old news

I think you can catch a direct train from London to the doorstep of euro Disney
As long as the money doesn't come from the public purse then they can do what they like.

Don't want another white elephant.

The site doesn't look very big, so to compare it to Disney seems a tad OTT.

Would be better off building some homes though.

quite easy to get to euro disney via public transport but it is a very long way away from London and so you would need to stay at least 2 nights there to enjoy a full day at the park.
Waste of space and money IMO.
Anywhere but London
why not in the north?

it will have to be a covered venue, look how bad Paris is when the weather is bad, ong, went in December, it was hell
