Trick or Treat – The Best (and Worst) Places to Visit on Halloween

As millions of children and their parents set out into the cold to go trick or treating this Halloween, National Homebuyers, the UK’s leading property buyers, can reveal the best towns to do it in to get the best results and the most sweets.

The Zoopla Trick or Treat Index ranks towns and cities across England by a combination of factors key to ensuring a successful Halloween haul. The Index takes into consideration factors such as property values, density of households, road safety and local crime rates .

50 of Englands largest towns were scored in the trick or trick index according to each data variable and the scores were then accumulated and each town ranked to get an overall score.

According to the Index it appears that Milton Keynes is the place to visit if you want a successful Halloween night this year.

With high property prices (£266,533) and the lowest crime rate of all the towns and cities analysed, means that Milton Keynes is the ideal and safest places for trick-or-treaters. Colchester came second in the trick or treat index because of the areas low crime and relatively high home values.

Zooplas Lawrence Hall said: “Seasoned trick or treaters know the secrets to securing the best Halloween haul and stay safe while doing so. The combination of a high density of affluent homes along with good road safety and low crime is the key to success on Halloween.

Mr Hall continued by saying “For the optimum Halloween experience, our index shows that Milton Keynes is the place to go. Homeowners in the area might want to stock up on goodies, or else be prepared for some tricks coming their way.”

At the other end of the trick or treat index, serious sweet-hunters might want to avoid Chesterfield, Middlesbrough and Hull which were identified as the least favorable towns for trick or treating through a combination of low property values, lower population density, higher crime and greater road traffic accident figures.
