Stonehenge would cost £51 million if it was put up for sale, according to a survey of 500 estate agents. Other landmarks include 10 Downing Street, priced at £5.2 million, and Windsor Castle, valued at £390.9 million. The survey carried out by property website FindaProperty.com also suggested Brighton Pavillion is valued at £51.9 million and Blackpool Tower at £60 million.
Nigel Lewis, a property analyst at FindaProperty.com, said: “Based on these valuations, the government and Crown probably own enough land and property to pay down the national debt pretty significantly. Of course, we know these landmarks will never be put up for sale, but with property prices shooting up 10 per cent in value over the past year we thought it would be fun to see what the market consensus was about their values. It’s quite a challenge for estate agents more used to valuing suburban semis to put an accurate valuation on a royal castle or ancient monument, but there was a surprising amount of agreement between the different agents we spoke to.” – from Telegraph
