A £3.5 billion theme park is being built near the British capital – and it’s been dubbed “UK’s version of Disney”.

The site sprawls across seven million square metres of land in Swanscombe, Kent.

Creators have partnered up with the BBC, ITV and Paramount Pictures to make rides based on popular films and TV shows.

And judging by the plans, the attraction is going to be incredible.

Artists' sketches show how guests will enter through a grand plaza complete with glass buildings and a magnificent arch.

Once inside the theme park, they can expect fireworks, a castle, rollercoasters and a waterpark.

The resort’s website says: "When complete, it will be three times larger than any other park in the UK.

"Two theme parks and a resort water park will be set over 535 acres, the equivalent of 136 Wembley Stadiums.

“A bespoke entertainment district, including the provision of 3,500 hotel rooms, will be devoted to a full-suite of hospitality experiences.

“There will be something for every generation and food and drink for every taste.

"But it's the rides and the experiences which will take The London Resort to another level. Brands from across literature, television, music, film and entertainment, are being hand-picked to create unique experiences never previously imagined."

London Resort shared a theme park update on Facebook last week.

A spokesperson said: “Yesterday we announced our public consultation.

“That’s one more crucial step towards making The Kingdom, an immersive realm of 'swords, sorcery, dragons and legend', a reality."

The post racked up more than 200 likes – and many shared their excitement about the update.

One commenter remarked: “I cannot wait!!! So excited for this project!”

Another said: “Well I've been following this project for some time and am quite looking forward to it becoming a reality.

“Come the day it opens I'll happily come down and give it a go.”

And a third added: ”Really hope this all comes to fruition, your concept art for this project is simply breathtaking!”
