Liverpool could be host to the ‘first permanent’ city zip line in the UK, the city council has announced.

The council has been in discussions with Zip World about running a zip line from St John's Beacon – the highest point in the city – to Liverpool Central Library.

Deputy mayor and cabinet member for leisure and culture, Cllr Wendy Simon, assures residents that the wire will not interfere with the day-to-day running of the library.

She also said it would attract more tourists to the city.

‘Central Library is already a tourist attraction in its own right, and this will help further boost visitor numbers as well as providing a valuable income stream at a time when we have significant budget challenges, and are increasingly looking to generate revenue to protect much-loved services such as libraries,’ she commented.

The firm, which runs three zip lines in Snowdonia National Park, said it hoped to open the attraction in 2021.
