According to research conducted by the fast house buying company Open Property Group, Liverpool is one of the top UK cities for scary searches on Google. Taking data from Google Trends, they found that Liverpool ranks 1st to be searched alongside the terms ‘haunted house’, ‘haunting’ and ‘mediumship’.
