In the UK you can also get it from Waterstones:

CORRECTIONS:
- I said the game has “finite money” but Chuck Monster has correctly pointed out that the official Monopoly rules state "It [the bank] never runs out of money; if it runs out of bills, players can use any convenient items as substitutes until the bank gets enough money."
