Pass Go For Swindon Monopoly 

But the jokes have already started on which street should be Old Kent Road
 
Next Christmas, it could be four hotels in Cavendish Square & houses on Lydiard Park after Swindon landed its very own MONOPOLY board.
 
The game will see 22 Swindon property landmarks swap places with the famous MONOPOLY London streets like Mayfair and Park Lane.

In addition, the four London train stations will be handed over to a Swindon ’travel’ theme, although it is likely to be heavily railway dominated given the town’s historic links with the railway industry.

Some of the Community Chest and Chance cards will be customised too. For example, one is being planned which may say :
 
‘You are fined for going to Oxford’!
 
Arkell's Brewery
 
A campaign has already started to make sure Swindon's historic Arkell's Brewery is included but the jokes have already started on which street is the town's version of Old Kent Road - with poor Manchester Road (with red hotels!) looking like favourite.
 
The Oasis is already popular for the Water Works, with Broome Manor looking like the posh choice for Mayfair.
 
But what do you think?
