Mayfair replaced by the cathedral city of St Albans as the nation’s top real estate

Monopoly launches UK-wide edition

Cities and towns across Britain take the place of London street names on the world's most popular board game after a vote by more than one million people. Leeds and Liverpool replace the cheap streets, Whitechapel and Old Kent Road, while posh Park Lane becomes Exeter. A city's position on the board was set by the number of votes it received. Thus, London, where the average price of a house is £313,000, comes before Stoke-on-Trent, Derby and Birmingham where buying a home can set you back half that amount. However, average house prices in commuter-belt St Albans are in fact the highest among the 22 towns and cities featured.
