New £450m film attraction to open in the UK at Pinewood Studios where James Bond, Marvel and Star Wars were filmed

A NEW film-inspired attraction is to open at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, known for its film production over the past 80 years.

The studios have been used to film blockbusters including the Marvel series, as well as Star Wars and James Bond.

One of the latest films to use the set includes the new Bond film, No Time To Die, scheduled for release in November.

The £450m project will be an expansion on the current site, called Screen Hub UK.

The Pinewood Studios Experience would be a 32,5000sqm attraction with film-inspired experiences yet to be revealed.

While little is known about what will be on offer for guests, live visits to the working sets are expected as part of the "film-inspired international visitor attraction".

An educational training and skills hub and a green campus would also be included.

Pinewood Group Chairman Paul Golding said: “The government and Buckinghamshire Local Enterprise Partnership have recognised Pinewood Studios as a major economic asset to be enhanced with the creation of a screen growth hub for the UK.

“We are pleased to be able to respond with this scheme. We have been looking at a visitor experience for some time and feel that now is the right moment to bring it forward.

“The project will strengthen UK film and bring much needed jobs and spending. We hope our planning application will receive widespread support.”

Planning applications are currently in the process of development.

However, other popular film and TV-inspired sets have been popular in recent years.

Game of Thrones fans are eagerly awaiting a new attraction based on the TV show which is set to open in the UK.

Proposals for the £24m tourist attraction have been accepted by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council in Northern Ireland.

Harry Potter fans have been able to finally return to Warner Brothers Studio after the attraction reopened last month.
