The proposed site is near Ebbsfleet International railway station, meaning it would be just a 17-minute journey time from London and two hours from Paris. It would be twice the size of the Olympic site in east London. Find out more from ITV Meridian.
This development represents a tremendous economic growth opportunity for the region. We have been impressed by LRCHs commitment to integrating the development with the local community, recognising the many economic and social benefits it promises to deliver.
– John Burden, Leader of Gravesham Borough Council
Our vision is to create a world class entertainment destination, the first of its kind in the UK. We are at the start of a long journey, but have been encouraged by the support and buy-in we have had to date.
We are particularly pleased with the appetite we are seeing from investors, who consider this a compelling investment proposition.
Post Olympics, this is Britain’s next major regeneration opportunity. Over the next 12-18 months we will be progressing the planning application, while embarking on a wide-reaching programme of community consultation, while securing further commercial agreements with third parties.
Our timetable for delivery, including the planning application process and construction timetable, is geared towards completion and opening in 2018.

The entertainment resort will be branded by Paramount. The site will feature Europe’s largest indoor water park, theatres, live music venues, cinemas, restaurants, hotels and a theme park. The site is on the doorstep of Ebbsfleet International station.
