To pass go, or not to pass go?
That’s something that board gamers could be asking themselves as Shakespeare’s hometown gets its very own Monopoly board.
It has been a busy year for Stratford-Upon-Avon who marked the 400th anniversary of the Bard’s death in April.
Following the game’s announcement, speculation had been building up as to which of the town’s well-known landmarks would make it.
And it has all been decided by members of the public who have been casting their votes.
They’ve chosen Shakespeare’s Birthplace and Anne Hathaway’s Cottage to land two of the board’s leading sites, Mayfair and Park Lane respectively.
In total, there will be 33 of the town’s iconic landmarks, including:
- Shakespeare's Schoolroom & Guildhall
- Shakespeare's New Place
- Holy Trinity Church
- The Royal Shakespeare Company
- The MAD Museum
Other UK cities to get a Monopoly board include Derby, Lincoln and Wolverhampton.
And it's not the only board game popular with people in the Midlands...
