Incredible New 'London Disneyland' Is Officially One Step Closer

The London Resort, a proposed theme park said to be the UK's answer to Disneyland, is now one step closer to opening its doors.

Yep, the resort that has been in development for a decade has taken the next step in becoming reality. The London Resort has started appealing for potential suppliers and brand partnerships ahead of its planned opening in 2024.

The resort is set to be in the Swanscombe Peninsula, near Dartford, Kent across 465 hectares with dozens of rides and experiences.

And with the help of ITV, BBC and Paramount Studios, there's sure to be lots to keep people of all ages entertained with rides inspired by the TV shows and films produced by the respective companies.

Initial plans for the resort were approved earlier this year. It will be separated into expertly designed zones, including what could be a truly breathtaking dinosaur themed land called Base Camp and a Mesoamerican-themed Jungle.

Once built it will be the biggest theme park constructed in Europe Disneyland Paris opened in April 1992.

However there have been some setbacks. The wildlife conservation charities Buglife, RSPB and Kent Wildlife Trust have opposed the new resort. Swanscombe Peninsula, the area in Kent where the resort is set to be built, is home to 1,700 invertebrate species, 200 of which are "considered of conservation importance", Natural England said in March.

The London Resort has said they are committed to making an "environmentally responsible" theme park with sustainability at the forefront of their development plans. On the company's website it says: "Sustainability is at the core of our vision.

"We are exploring new and innovative ways of integrating sustainable and low-carbon principles into every area of design and operation of the London Resort.

"Our aim is to create one of the most sustainable theme park destinations in the world.

If the Development Consent Order application is granted, London Resort could begin construction in 2022.
