  1. That's great but the business model is to attract international visitors who will have no idea about Dr Who, Top Gear and or the BBC version of Sherlock set in the modern day. They would not have the top Dutch, German or French TV program converted into an attraction so why these?

  2. Popular BBC shows such as Doctor Who, Sherlock and Top Gear could be turned into theme-park attractions as part of a development deal involving the Hollywood studio behind Mission Impossible and Star Trek.

    BBC Worldwide, the commercial arm of the BBC, has struck a deal with a Kuwait-backed property developer to allow a range of its programmes and characters to be “brought to life” at a new £2bn theme park and holiday resort to be built by the Thames estuary in north Kent, in partnership with Paramount Pictures.

    When is construction likely to start?

  5. Here's all concept art found in the brochure:







  6. Paramount London will be displaying their plans for the £2bn Paramount London Entertainment Resort on the Swanscombe Peninsula. It will feature a theme park, waterpark, sporting facilities, an entertainment street, a staff training academy and about 5,000 hotel rooms.

    If all goes to plan, it will open in early 2020.

    The display will be at Thurrock Civic Hall, Blackshots Lane, Grays. 2pm-6pm on November 12th.

  7. Official logo:


    Further details on the £2billion London Paramount park in north Kent have been unveiled ahead of the first round of public consultations on the ambitious project.

    And one of the senior executives behind the scheme say the meetings will bring “some of the fizz” for what it intends will ultimately become Europe’s best entertainment destination.
    And in the coming weeks, the public will get the chance to finally get a peek at some of the plans.

    The working logo has also been unveiled this week (pictured).

  8. Delayed, as expected.

    Developers behind the planned Paramount Pictures entertainment resort on the Swanscombe Peninsula, near Dartford, said the revised opening date was Easter 2020.

    Fenlon Dunphy, director at London Resort Company Holdings, said the new date was "achievable and realistic".

    The company held a series of public consultation events in July, but still has to submit a planning application.

    It said they were attended by more than 2,000 people and were the first stage of a year-long consultation process.
