2024 is the date set to open a new multi-billion pound 535-acre theme park dubbed “UK Disneyland”. The park will have 200 acres dedicated to rides and experiences at the Swanscombe Peninsula in Kent, just a one-hour drive from surrey and only a 17 minuet train from Kings Cross Station.

The new theme park is said to be one of the largest construction projects across Europe and is estimated to create over 30,000 jobs. The park will include an entertainment district alongside 3,500 hotel rooms

The park has signed a deal with ITV Studios as it aims to become one of the largest “immersive experience” resorts in the world. This partnership could see any number of ITV’s huge brands involved in the project, as the studios portfolio includes I’m A Celebrity, Come Dine With Me, The Voice, Saturday Night Takeaway and Hell’s Kitchen.

The London resort has made deals with Aardman Animations, creators of Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep and the British Film Institute and BBC Worldwide which include the rights to use the Doctor Who and Sherlock brands.

Steve Green, ITV Studios Global Entertainment, said “ITV Studios Creates more than TV, building global franchises loved by generations of families, and we look forward to seeing one of our biggest global brands brought to life on such a grand scale right here in the UK.”
