Lake district monopoly game


By on September 19th, 2019 in Lifestyle

A Lake District Monopoly game is in the works!

Roll up, roll up… have you heard the great news?! A Lake District Monopoly game will be coming to stores near you in the not too distant future!

From next spring onward, families will gather around the table as they buy, sell and auction for 30 iconic Lake District landmarks, which will replace the traditional London locations that are seen in the original game.

The news that Mr. Monopoly will be extending his timeless franchise to now introduce a Lake District Monopoly game hit earlier this week… and it’s safe to say we are incredibly excited about the enterprise!

The game will be sold by all major UK retailers.

Mr. Monopoly needs your help!

For the exciting project, Mr. Monopoly and his band of thieves responsible for bringing the game to Britain’s high street have enlisted the public’s help. You are being formally invited to put forward your nominations of which local Lake District landmarks you think should be included on the board.

“The public is being invited to vote for their Lake District favourites to feature in the game. Some landmarks look like absolute shoo-ins. We welcome and invite all suggestions.” – George Shrimpton, Monopoly employee

To nominate your favourite Lake District landmarks that you think should be included in the Lake District Monopoly game, all you need to do is email your suggestions to thelakes@winningmoves.co.uk.

Alternatively, you can submit your suggestions via the official Facebook page: The Lakes Monopoly Edition.

You only have one month to forward your suggestions so do not be shy and get emailing!

Help us get northern landmarks featured on the Lake District Monopoly game.

With all of our hotels being based in the North of the Lake District National Park, we would be absolutely thrilled if some of the fells/landmarks closer to home made an appearance on the beloved board.

We definitely feel our local area should be celebrated through this exciting enterprise, having so much to offer to tourists that many people may not know about.
