There is a nod to the famous Preston Guild Hall, which is currently closed, with a card dedicated to celebrating a ‘Grand Re-opening’.

Other landmarks that have won a place in the special edition board game include Deepdale, the mush loved Listed red telephone boxes on Market Street, the University of Central Lancashire, Avenham Park, No. 10 Preston, Preston Minster, the Flag and Covered markets and more.

There was speculation over what would be in the place of the four original train stations. Taking up two of the positions are the Preston Guild Wheel and the marina, keeping in with the travel theme.

The Mayor of Preston, Cllr David Borrow, says: “This is a very tough time for Preston and Lancashire so we need all the good news we can get.

“Preston’s very own Monopoly game – highlighting what’s special about the city – is great and just in time for Christmas.”
