One of our schools is starring in a brand new edition of the famous Monopoly board game which is based on properties in Harrogate.
St Aidan’s Church of England High School is one of the squares that edge the board and now sits on the traditional “Bond St” site next to Knaresborough Railway Station.
Harrogate beat 49 rival towns to be the newest local version on the game, which includes landmarks such as Betty’s Tea Rooms, RHS Garden Harlow Carr and the historic Turkish Baths.
Chris Ives, Acting Associate Headteacher at St Aidan’s said:
“We are very pleased to be involved in Harrogate Monopoly. St Aidan’s is at the heart of the Harrogate community and it is a delight to support a local project in this way.
“We know that all our current students and alumni will be excited to see us on the Harrogate Monopoly board.”
The Stray, home to some of Harrogate’s most expensive properties, takes the place of Old Kent Road - the cheapest square on the board.
