weroom.com house share website > show how todays uk monopoly board would look









Keen board game-players among you may be aware that today is National Monopoly Day. No? Well, it is. And to celebrate, we're taking another look at how depressing London's current property prices are in relation to the good old days of 1935 when the first Monopoly game was released. 



house sharing just got alot easier & safer and weroom.com


Houseshare website Weroom looked at the average rent costs in London to see how far a wad of Monopoly cash would get you in today's property market. Spoiler alert: the days of getting a Park Lane property for £350 are long gone. 


These days, £350 would secure you a whole 11 days in a Park Lane property, with the average monthly cost at £953. But it could be worse, Whitechapel was a bargain back in the day at £60 but based on the current average of £950pcm, that would only get you 45 hours and 36 minutes, which is just about enough time to unpack and then pack everything up again. Happy Monopoly day, guys!
