There are a couple of Monopoly Games, both made exclusively for English Heritage.

There's the Castle version - acquire castles instead of hotels.  Try to avoid paying tithes or having to repair your battlements after a siege!  

The Monopoly game takes you on a chronological journey through the ages, from Prehistory to the Modern Age.
