Monopoly - through the years
Mayfair may be top of the board still, but its second in command, Park Lane, has dropped 12 places to number 14. This is a similar case for Fleet Street dropping from 10th to 20th place on the board. For others, their popularity has increased with Whitehall moving from 16th to 7th place and Vine Street going from 12th to 4th place.
The Board Revised
Interestingly, in today's prices, some properties on the board would be placed higher in value, where as some have decreased.
Here’s what the modern day board would look like, based on the top 22 most affordable places in London; placing them into their deserved slots on the board.
Interestingly only two places on the original board appear in today’s revised version, Old Kent Road and Whitechapel Road, coming in second and fourth.
Moreover, the price of properties on the board range from a quarter of a million (Barking - £244,326) to just under £600,000 (Haringey - £552,888). With Barratt London having developments in areas such as Greenwich, which fall under an average of £400,000, you could be closer to your London home than you first thought.
With the popularity of London continuing to increase, with up and coming areas popping up all the time, how could the Monopoly board change in the next 80 years?
