The UK has a lot of things going for it, there's no doubt about that, but one thing itdoesn't have is a theme park to rival the likes of Disneyland...

Until now. Or, technically, at least until 2021.

Yep, your childhood dreams are set to come true as Paramount is gearing up to open the Paramount London Entertainment Resort, which pretty much looks like Disneyland but British.

The park, which will be the first of its kind in the UK, will be packed with rides and attractions for children and families, as well as indoor and open-air entertainment events, all in "themed zones".

Paramount Pictures has teamed up with the likes of the BBC and Aardman Animations in the hope of creating stage shows and live acts, so you could soon be rubbing shoulders with The Doctor and the Daleks, Wallace and Gromit and delving into the worlds of Star Trek, Indiana Jones and Transformers.

Exciting stuff, we know.

London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH), the firm in charge of the project, plans to bring the entertainment resort to the Swanscombe peninsula in north Kent.

Humphrey Percy, CEO of the venture's parent company Kuwaiti European Holdings, said of the plans (via the Daily Mail): "We're working with world-class theme park design companies to make sure that we have a real attraction.

"I'm talking about companies that have their headquarters in California and support the major film studios and attractions across the world."

Adding that the park will be an "amazing and exciting" attraction, Humphrey promised: "We will make sure that this experience is for the whole family."
