Plans for a £2bn theme park in Kent have gone on show as part of a public consultation.

Paramount Pictures entertainment resort on the Swanscombe Peninsula, near Dartford, is due to open at Easter 2020, the developers said.

London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH) is holding a series of public consultation events in Dartford and Gravesham over the next two weeks.

The park on a former cement works is expected to create up to 27,000 jobs.

In September, LRCH announced the opening of the park had been delayed by more than a year.

The 900-acre brownfield site is next to Ebbsfleet International station, which is 17 minutes from London and two hours from Paris.
