Paramount Pictures has unveiled plans to build one of the world’s biggest theme parks in Britain – creating 27,000 jobs at a former cement works.

The huge GBP2bn  attraction will be built near Dartford, Kent, to rival Disneyland Paris. It will be built on brownfield land on the Swanscombe Peninsula, between Dartford and Gravesend, Kent, which was formerly a cement works owned by Lafarge.

The entertainment complex  will be twice the size of the Olympic Park and be among the four largest theme parks anywhere in the world featuring Europe’s largest indoor water park, theatres, rollercoasters, live music venues, attractions, cinemas, restaurants, event space and hotels.

Officials say it will have an “historical and British heritage” theme and will be completed in six years.
Incredibly, families in northern France will be able to reach the attraction in just 90 minutes by train – quicker than those in many parts of England.
