    Most travellers will obviously take the train to the theme park because it is the fastest mode of transport from London. Ebbsfleet International station has a frequent service train travelling from London via Ebbsfleet (http://ebbsfleetinternational.co.uk/?station=paramount-theme-park) and connects directly to major cities in Europe including Paris, Brussels, Cologne. London Paramount predicted that as many as 20% will travel by train (http://www.londonparamount.info/transport/). However I wonder how many will be Europeans coming in from Europe vs commuters from London?

    Disneyland in Paris will be an obvious competitor, however London will be faster connected. A journey from London St. Pancras to Ebbsfleet takes 17 minutes and then a 3 minute express bus to the Paramount theme park; just over 20 minutes in total --where as it takes approximately 1 hour between Paris and DLP.

    The creators of Wallace and Gromit, Shaun the Sheep, and Chicken Run signed a Memorandum of Understanding with London Resort Company Holdings, the company behind the London Paramount Entertainment Resort.



    London Resort Company Holdings Ltd (LRCH), the company behind the multi-billion pound project in North Kent, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Aardman Animations Ltd to feature their intellectual property at the resort alongside iconic Hollywood characters from Paramount Pictures.

    The themed workshop sessions in spring 2015 will be an opportunity to progress issues identified at previous exhibitions in more depth with our specialist consultants. Each workshop will follow a similar format including short presentations on both the proposals for London Paramount and the consultation process. This will be followed by breakout sessions where information will be provided to enable smaller groups to discuss and debate the topics before feeding back to the group to conclude the session.

  5. Mr Testa explained that the government was due to make its decision on a planning application early next year with work starting on the peninsula almost the immediately afterwards. The reason the government will make the planning decision, rather than Gravesend Borough Council, is that the development is being considered under the Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects scheme. That means government are able to decide on its planning application.

    The first stage of the resort is due to open at Easter 2020.

    Land sold to Paramount developer.

    Lafarge Tarmac has signed a deal to sell land needed for a planned new £2bn theme park in Kent. The 388 acre site at Swanscombe Peninsula was formerly the largest cement plant in the UK which closed in 1993.

  7. Developers hope to submit a planning application for the £2 billion entertainment resort at the Swanscombe Peninsula in the next few months.
    And the team behind the project say they have been boosted by feedback after releasing results from a series of 12 consultations, attended by more than 2,000 people.

    Of the 786 feedback forms received, 82% of respondents say they approve the draft masterplan while 63% support proposed transport schemes.

  8. Agreed, the same team who convinced Disney to build Euro Disney in Paris by suggesting the weather was warm and sunny.

    These international projects need all year footfall, accessibility, and good weather. Kent fails on all these. Perhaps if common-sense prevailed they would join forces with Paramount Park Murcia and build it there. A dedicated airport ( when it opens) cheap flights £80 return ( cheaper than driving and parking in Kent).

    They have all the plans and licenses and are ready to go but no funds yet . Seems obvious but doubt it will happen.

  9. Why Kent? It must be one of the most inaccessible areas of UK if you live north or west of M25!

  10. Because all those TV series you listed are internationally known... Sherlock and Doctor Who are very popular series in the US.
