A Lancashire area has been selected to have its own edition of Monopoly.

Lancaster has been chosen to get its very own edition of the board game, with iconic landmarks and special places in the city set to feature.

The property trading board game is currently in production and set to be released in October.

People have been asked to submit which landmarks in the historic city they wish to feature.

Lancaster Castle and Williamson Park are just some ideas that have been put forward so far.

A spokesperson for Lancaster Monopoly said: “Lancaster passes go!

“Lancaster is on a big roll for 2023.. a roll of the Monopoly dice!

“It’s getting its very own official Monopoly game for this year.

“So how [would you like to] own the very finest of the city, like the uni, castle and Ashton Memorial, over the dinner table this Christmas?

“The game is out in October but before then, as we put the board together, please tell us who you think should features on the squares and cards.”

To celebrate the news the Mayor of Lancaster, Councillor Joyce Pritchard, met ‘Mr Monopoly’ in Williamson Park earlier this week.

A council spokesperson said: “ Councillor Joyce Pritchard was delighted to meet Mr Monopoly in Williamson Park this morning to celebrate the news that Lancaster is going to get it’s very own edition of this famous board game.

“With so many landmarks and special places to choose from, what would you like to see included on the squares and cards?”

Lancaster isn’t the first city to have received its own version of the game. Manchester, Coventry, Bradford and others also have editions.
