Universal Destinations & Experiences have launched a website dedicated to their “UK Project”. Earlier this week, Universal confirmed it has purchased land in Bedford, England and is “exploring its feasibility” for a possible theme park.

The Universal UK Project website went on to insist that they were just “exploring” possible experiences for the land located about 45 miles from the edge of London and the Warner Bros. Studio Tour. – The Making of Harry Potter. The potential park would be located in the yellow portion of the map above released by Universal.
Here’s what Universal wrote on the website:
Universal Destinations & Experiences is in the early stages of exploring the possibility of a potential park and resort experience in Bedford, England. While our parent company, Comcast Corporation, has purchased a parcel of land near Bedford, we have only just begun a feasibility study as part of our evaluation of potential locations. Therefore, it may be many months before we decide whether this potential project will proceed or not.
Collaboration and engagement with the community is at the heart of any new experience we explore and if we undertake a project in Bedford there will be opportunities to meet with us and discuss any What are the plans as they develop? Thank you for your visit.
Universal Destinations & Experiences also sent a letter to local residents and shared it on the Project UK website. They note that Universal theme parks create “thousands of jobs and generate significant positive economic impacts, both locally and beyond.” They also say they are “committed to enhancing the natural beauty and protecting the ecosystems of the areas in which we operate.” Universal hopes to “work closely with local communities if we make progress.”
