    Default Monopoly: Birmingham Version

    I am thinking of doing Monopoly (Birmingham Version) pub crawl. However finding name of its street and train stations on net proving very difficult so can any of you help with this?

    Thanks.

    Birmingham New Street station, Snow Hill station (including the Midland Metro) and Moor Street are the main train stations. You could throw in Digbeth coach station because Digbeth has some excellent pubs. Birmingham International train station is situated at the NEC and airport - it's in the borough of Solihull but you could feasibly stretch to that one if you specifically wanted 4 main train stations.

    Instead of utilities etc you could throw in the Arcadian, Mailbox and Brindley Place.

    Main sporting venues are Villa Park, St Andrews, Edgbaston Cricket Ground and Alexander Stadium (Perry Barr athletics).

    Are you looking to stay within the ring road or venture out to its suburbs?
    Waes hael!

    Well I am looking at any suburb that belongs to Birmingham council. There is an official Monopoly Birmingham board but cannot find the image of it or list of streets/stations anywhere on net.

    I'll make exception for BIA as it serves Birmingham despite it's location in Solihull.
