Whether you will be raising a pint to the Queen for her Diamond Jubilee or just having a cup of tea, let's see if you can remember how much things used to cost back then.

The Office of National Statistics says you cannot compare like with like. In 1977 it priced a pint bottle of beer, not draught. Even so, it was less than 40p, compared with closer to £3 a pint today – a rise of 618%.
