Twitter reacts to unwelcome Monopoly property

Canterbury Monopoly has unwanted property

Rogue Rochester Castle appeared on the Canterbury Monopoly Credit: PA

A new Canterbury version of the popular board game Monopoly erroneously features Rochester Castle. Somehow the site found its way on to the board - despite obviously being in Rochester, not Canterbury.

Earlier this year members of the public voted on which landmarks would appear as properties on the board. Canterbury Cathedral was chosen as the top spot - replacing Mayfair on the original UK version of the board.

Do not pass GO; Do not collect £200!

Now what do you think links a top hat, a car, a dog and an iron? It's the board game, Monopoly - those are the classic pieces. It's normally based around London of course but now the makers have announced a version for Canterbury.

It beat off all the other towns in Kent in a public vote - and now there's ANOTHER vote to choose which locations in the city will make it onto the board.

David Johns reports, speaking to game developer Dan Taylor and Nick Papadopulos from Canterbury Cathedral.

Nominations for locations should be sent to or by post to: Canterbury Monopoly, Winning Moves UK, 7 Praed Street, London W2 1NJ
