While the original 1935 order of the Monopoly board was loosely based on property values at the time, new research has revealed what the board could look like with 2024 property values.

The research by gaming company 1337.Games analysed the average sale price of each area on the classic Monopoly board to see what the board's order would look like nowadays.

It found that Park Lane now sits as the most expensive area, with an average asking price for properties in the area of £7,750,000. Mayfair now falls into second place with an average asking price of £5,459,353 based on 2024 metrics. One of the most significant differences is Coventry Street, which has now been moved 11 spots down the board, with an average property asking price of £796,774. Pall Mall has seen a significant rise from its original place on the board, moving up 9 spots, with average asking prices in the area sitting at £2,578,778.

Euston Road, Old Kent Road, and Vine Street are now the cheapest areas on the board. Vine Street sits at the bottom after falling ten spots from the original 1935 order, with an average property asking price of £478,486. The Angel Islington, which previously sat in the bottom three, has seen a move up 7 spots, with average property asking prices in the area now being £977,222.

Commenting on the findings, Emre Aksu, a spokesperson from 1337.Games said:
“While many areas have seen big changes in the order they come in when compared to the original 1935 board, some areas have also seen minimal changes in their placement as well. With house prices across the country fluctuating over the past few years, it will be interesting to see how much this varies once again at some point in the future, and whether the order will stray further from Monopoly’s original order or even return to what it was.”
