large format paper??

Hi all, im looking to start a larger drawing than usual, needs to be at least 34-36 inches on the longer side, prefer smooth hot press paper for realism but can only find them a1 29-30 inches, am I stuck with making my drawing smaller or is there any good quality paper in larger sizes I can source [UK based] Can anyone point me in the right direction if any?
cheers Eddie.

You can get hot press watercolour paper in a roll from most of the big on line art suppliers such as Jackson’s. Usually around 1.1-1.5 by 9 metres. Which will cover what you want several times over. Expensive though (and unless you can get there in person, delivery isn’t cheap either)

There is a lot of paper rolls out there for you. But you're going to have to spend something. Not 1 to 3 hundred but your paper is out there.
