Free and family-friendly, the MONOPOLY Leeds Takeover invites players to explore 22 key locations, solve puzzles, play mini-games and discover giant tokens scattered across eight themed zones.

Leeds was home to Waddingtons, Britain’s leading manufacturer of board games and playing cards. From the 1930s, Waddingtons produced the UK version of MONOPOLY and was responsible for the now famous London properties in the game.
