Welcome to Monopoly Board London

The London version of the Monopoly Board was devised in the 1930's and has become one of the best-known board games of all time. But what do all these famous roads, streets and stations represented on the board actually look like? That was the starting point for this site - to visit and photograph all the locations on the board. Some of the places are instantly recognisable and feature on many a tourist's itinerary while others are relatively unknown and rarely visited.

Use the page links on the right to view the photographs and descriptions of all the locations - I'll also be posting news and events and any extra snippets of information in the main blog area.

Joy Division photography exhibition at Somerset House, Strand

Dropped into Somerset House on the Strand today to have a look at the exhibition of Joy Division photographs by former NME photographer Kevin Cummins. The band are captured in their Manchester rehearsal room and on stage at The Factory in Hulme. There are also some iconic location shots depicting the band in snowy Manchester. This exhibition is on until January 30th in the South Wing of Somerset House. Signed copies of Cummins' latest book featuring more classic photographs of the band are available if you're still feeling flush after xmas.
