Visitors can start their journey in The Studios, a gritty, modern-day warehouse district with blockbuster action movie features, including high-octane car chases and high-stakes espionage.

Just to the north lies The Woods, an enchanted realm that puts a fresh spin on well-known bedtime stories, fables and fairy tales.

Next to the Woods is The Kingdom, an immersive realm of swords, sorcery, dragons & legend based on legends from King Arthur’s England.

Then there is The Isles, a land of giant creatures, mythical beasts and adventures on high-tech rides, and The Jungle, which features ancient ruins of a mysterious long-lost Mesoamerican civilisation to keep young explorers occupied.

The final land called The Starport is a 23rd century landing zone dedicated to futuristic experiences, alien encounters and science-fiction rides.

Earlier this year, other images revealed a large walkway surrounded by hotels, with up to 3,500 rooms across the park. Also along the “High Street” walkway will be shops and restaurants.

Other new UK projects include an £100m Peak District resort which will open next year with an indoor activity park and hotels.

In Manchester, a £250m water park and spa will open by 2024.
