    Whilst we still haven’t made any final decisions on whether or not to proceed with the project, we have spent the past several months undertaking feasibility and due diligence work as well as discussing the project with local and national stakeholders.

    We are now beginning a period of public engagement in connection with the planning proposal for this potential project.

  2. Mayor Tom Wootton of Bedford Borough recently visited members of the Universal Destinations and Experiences team at their site in Kempston Hardwick.

    Tom said, “While they are still exploring the feasibility of bringing a potential theme park and resort experience here, it was great to meet with their team once again as they continue engaging with our local community. This project must work for local people. After my conversations with Universal and others, I believe it can provide jobs and exciting career and business opportunities for Bedford Borough residents for generations to come.

    “I understand it will still be some time before Universal makes a decision on whether to proceed with the potential project but it was exciting to see the site today.”

  3. Universal Destinations & Experiences is in the very early stages of exploring the possibility of a potential park and resort experience in Bedford, England. Whilst our parent company, Comcast Corporation, has purchased a parcel of land near Bedford, we are only at the beginning of our feasibility study as part of our evaluation of potential sites. It may well therefore be many months before we decide whether this potential project will proceed.

    The Universal Destinations & Experiences spokesperson told the Bedford Independent that Bedford’s connectivity to London and Europe was a factor in their decision to begin looking at the feasibility of a park in the area.

    They said, “We support Bedford’s vision of becoming a prosperous place to live, work and visit and we take a proactive approach to partnering with local communities and stakeholders, like Bedford Borough Council, when pursuing potential projects.”
    Yes fantastic news. I just hope this doesn't get interrupted for years by local residents especially with all the house building going on around there.

    Interesting. From the concept art this does appear to have been the location however the rumours are this art is 11 months old and the site Universal have just bought is just down the road by Bedford instead.

  7. The concept art is old so perhaps the location reflected in the concept art is also old?

  9. Did some geo location on the concept art. Wether or not its up to date. The location of that park is actually Caldecote in Milton Keynes Which is right beside the M1 and based on the concept art looks like there could be an elevated transport to Milton Keynes Station which is a main HS line. Looking at the land property map this could very well match the rumored 500 acres.
